PRIDE Final Conference

08 September 2016 00:00 - 09 September 2016 23:59
Location: Berlin, Berlin, Allemagne
Category: Conference


PRIDE Final Conference

hosted by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Humboldt Graduate School).

Target audience: University leadership, heads of Doctoral Schools & Programmes, university HR managers, and academic and professional staff working in doctoral education.

Doctoral education underwent a major transformation in the last decade in Europe. The changes were supported by new organisational structures and strategic investments in the quality of scientific supervision and the personal & professional development of doctoral candidates. However, the development of the new framework did not take fully into account the new roles and needs of professionals working in the area, who not only support the training of doctoral candidates and the work of supervisors, but also assume the roles of science communicators, project and quality managers, active observers of the labour market, and act as liaison officers with external stakeholders.

The need for proper investment in the professional development of administrative staff working within the new framework of doctoral education in Europe set a foundation for this PRIDE Project.

The Final Conference will highlight the findings and outcomes of the project, which were obtained through a series of activities, including the PRIDE Survey conducted in universities across Europe, focus groups, and collection of examples of best practice. The Final Conference is also considered to become the kick-off for future networking activities.

In the course of presentations, panel discussions and working groups, the Conference will examine how the major developments in doctoral education influenced the role and responsibilities of administrators working in the area. It will offer insights into good practices of up to date support for doctoral candidates and discuss existing tools for needs assessment, training & development of professionals in doctoral education.
