The conference 'Today's research training - does it meet tomorrow's needs?' will take place in Hamburg, Germany, on 5 December 2008 as the final event of the ReMaT ('Development of research management training for doctoral research students') project.

The event will provide a forum for exchanging best practice in complementary skills training for PhD programmes. With a special focus on presentations and interactive discussions, it aims to:
- use the concept of the knowledge triangle of education, research and innovation to develop novel approaches towards doctoral education;
- examine the role that complementary skills training plays in enhancing the flexibility, open-mindedness and employability of young PhD graduates;
- exchange best practice and develop new strategies for taking up complementary skills training as an integral part of doctoral education.

ReMaT is an EU project funded under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) as a life science support action with the ultimate goal of achieving broad support for integrating research management 'complementary' skills training measures as an essential part of doctoral education.For further information, please visit:
