Guidelines for Skills Analysis

Guidelines will be created for the analysis of skills needs of employers who are involved in open innovation networks ie governmentbased institutions universities commercial entities and nonforprofit organisations who hire PhD graduates and PhD graduate who work in these networks These guidelines will also encompass identification of innovative PhD programs with significant presence of Open Science elements The investigators will oversee the skill analysis in their respective countries according to the guidelines leading to mutually comparable results

Profiles of PhD graduates to guide curriculum co-design

Profiles of PhD Graduates will be created who are equipped with open science and innovation skills that will guide the codesign process of the educational intervention and will be used as a resource in the career counselling aspect of the OPENING DOORS open online course

Report presenting the career development of students who completed the OPENING DOORS course
