Date :  du 13-06-2019 au 14-06-2019

Lieu :  Brescia

Organisation :  European University Association (EUA)

Programme : 

The EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) is happy to announce its 2019 Annual Meeting, entitled “The societal dimension of doctoral education”.

The meeting will focus on the different ways doctoral education and doctoral candidates relate and contribute to society. This includes topics such as the relations between doctoral education and the Sustainable Development Goals, inter-sectoral mobility and collaboration, citizen science and the link between science communication and doctoral education. The EUA-CDE Annual Meeting will also offer reflections on policies and practices that assist the contribution of doctoral candidates to society and on doctoral education structures in general. Open to everyone interested in this field, the EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) invites university members and other stakeholders to take this opportunity to exchange good practices and build new relations with European policy makers, funding organisations and global partners. This event may be of particular interest for academic leaders, doctoral education professionals, doctoral candidates and other research stakeholders.
