Excellence through Diversity: Doctoral education in a globalised world

Contributed by: European University Association

From 2018-06-07 to 2018-06-08, Slovenia
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the European University Association's Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE), the meeting highlights diversity as an enduring characteristic and strength of doctoral education in Europe.
The European University Association's Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) will hold an event on "Excellence through Diversity: Doctoral education in a globalised world". It will be hosted by the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia on 7-8 June 2018.

Doctoral education across Europe reflects the diversity of European higher education and research systems and the changes that have taken place in the doctoral education landscape over the last decade. These include higher participation rates, continued internationalisation, the organisational variety of doctoral programmes and diverse backgrounds of doctoral candidates. This landscape offers opportunities for enhancing mutual learning and collaboration.

The meeting will focus on diversity in doctoral education. Academic leaders, doctoral education professionals and other stakeholders will gather to consider how different dimensions of diversity contribute to the success of doctoral education in an increasingly globalised environment. These include institutional diversity, as well as the diverse backgrounds of today’s doctoral candidates and also access to doctoral education.

One key element of our meeting will be the presentation and discussion of the results of a comprehensive study on the organisation of doctoral education in Europe. The study will provide key information on the status of doctoral education in Europe and feed into the work of the EUA-CDE in the coming years. Given the growing importance of internationalisation in doctoral education, the programme will also include perspectives from outside Europe.

EUA-CDE Annual Meetings have become the largest and most comprehensive gatherings of academic leaders, doctoral education professionals and other stakeholders working on doctoral education and research training in Europe. They are open to everyone with an interest in this field.

More information, including on how to register, is available on www.eua.eu. The deadline for registrations is 23 May 2018.
