Developing and Implementing hands-on training on Open Science and Open Innovation for Early Career Researchers

Project description

A full-cycle concept of doctoral education

The EU-funded DIOSI project proposes a full-cycle concept of doctoral training, from the development of a new joint model for doctoral education - through the provision of training on open science and open innovation and entrepreneurship for doctoral candidates and early career researchers (DCs and ECRs) - to measuring the impact of such training by creating an impact and graduate tracking framework. The DIOSI partners have strong collaboration ties and include the YUFE universities (Young Universities for the Future of Europe European University Alliance) and one business partner, InnoEXC GMBH. With this project, the partners aim to boost their DCs' and ECRs' skills training and future careers.

Objective

The DIOSI project proposes a full cycle concept on doctoral education, from the development of a new joint doctoral educational programme, through the provision of training on Open Science and Open Innovation & Entrepreneurship for doctoral candidates and early career researchers (DCs and ECRs), to the measurement of impact of such training, by creating an impact and graduate tracking framework.

First, in order to integrate skills training into PhD programmes and to value training in transferable skills as equitable to research skills, we develop a DIOSI model for doctoral education.

Second, in order to tackle skills shortages in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship skills of researchers and the need for a culture shift towards Open Science, we will provide training on Open Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Open Science for DCs and ECRs. The project will fund train-the-trainer sessions to build capacity and expertise and take the existing offers to the next level. Each newly formed trainer will then run a pilot session at the home institution. During the project, up to 900 DCs and ECRs will benefit from the training.

Third, in order to understand the impact of such training, we implement a joint impact and graduate tracking framework.

The DIOSI partners have strong collaboration ties, as they are the YUFE universities (Young Universities for the Future of Europe European University Alliance). Therefore, the institutions have committed to co-fund each of the work packages and apply for this funding to boost their DCs and ECRs skills training and future careers!
