Enhancing skills intelligence and integration into existing PhD programmes by providing transferable skills training through an open online platform

Deliverables

Initial PEDR

This deliverable will provide a Plan for the Exploitation and Dissemination of the project Results (PEDR) to define the outreach and targeted strategy for the dissemination of the project results and activities. The plan will include in detail the dissemination activities, channels, tools and stakeholder target groups that are relevant to the project.

Good practice recommendations for integration of transferable skills training in PhD programmes

This deliverable will provide a review of different initiatives and resources (e.g. the DocEnhance skills gap pre-assessment and results generated by relevant EU projects) that are pertinent to creating good practice recommendations for integrating transferable skills training into PhD programmes. The purpose of this deliverable is to identify the position of transferable skills in PhD training across Europe and beyond.

Report on reference architecture

This deliverable will describe the reference architecture for the DocEnhance Platform as well as the functional specification (functionalities, interfaces, interactions) of the core building blocks will be developed. The reference architecture will also specify the MoSCoW planning of the functional specifications to be delivered over the development phases.

Interaction model for educational collaboration between the academic and non-academic sector

WP3 will define the key factors in high-quality interaction with and responsiveness to society in the piloted courses. Based on this, WP3 will develop an interaction model for educational collaboration between the academic and non-academic sector, in alignment with the SoTL.

Requirements analysis

This deliverable will describe all the requirements that are specified for the DocEnhance Platform, considering the features outline and technical blueprint. Requirements can be separated into operational, design, performance and technical (functional and non-functional) requirements. This deliverable will consider the desired features from the perspective of each stakeholder involved in the DocEnhance project. Particular attention will be paid to the visibility of the DocEnhance brand when considering the different bootstrapping options onto the European PhD Hub.

Platform testing framework

WP5 will provide a framework for testing the DocEnhance platform. The iterative testing phase will take place at the same time as the two iteration phases. During the implementation phase, the developer team will deliver new functionalities following the burn-up chart, using iterative testing method to have short feedback loops.

Interim PEDR

This deliverable provides an updated version of the Plan for Exploitation and Dissemination of the project Results.

Project visual identity (logo, templates)

This deliverable provides a project-specific branding identity in line with the communications strategy that will support and facilitate the promotion of the project. This will provide a common visual denominator for stakeholders to identify the project clearly and therefore raise the project’s visibility to non-partners. Overall, the following elements will be developed and produced within this deliverable for the promotion of the project and its results: • A project visual identity (logo and templates)

User's manual for the DocEnhance platform

This deliverable will provide a user manual for the DocEnhance platform.

1st Policy Brief

This deliverable provides a brief overview of the impact achieved by the project up to M18.

External project website

This deliverable will provide a project website presenting the project goals, expected impact, consortium partners, milestones and a news section. The website will serve to inform the target groups identified in the PEDR about the project progress. Relevant project outputs will be made available on the website, while their sustainability will be guaranteed through the DocEnhance Platform (WP5).

The DocEnhance Platform

The main aim of WP5 is to establish a dynamic, adaptable and sustainable online platform, the DocEnhance Platform, for building and maintaining the network and community, and for sharing of the developed DocEnhance OERs (SO7). The DocEnhance Platform will support the creation of a network of academic and non-academic institutions by creating an online and interdisciplinary space for co-operation and information sharing with the aim of supporting innovative career-oriented PhD training. The platform will therefore support the modernisation of PhD programmes by making resources (courses, guidelines, reports, studies) created through the project available to different networks. WP5 will build upon an existing platform and network called the European PhD Hub. DocEnhance will bootstrap onto this existing resource to maximise project impact and improve efficiency of EU funds allocated to the field of making PhD education future proof.

Promotion and communication material

This deliverable provides a project-specific branding identity in line with the communications strategy that will support and facilitate the promotion of the project. This will provide a common visual denominator for stakeholders to identify the project clearly and therefore raise the project’s visibility to non-partners. Overall, the following elements will be developed and produced within this deliverable for the promotion of the project and its results: • Printed and digital brochures and flyers • Digital banners • Printed and digital posters

Initial Data Management Plan

DocEnhance is part of the H2020 Open Research Data Pilot, and therefore this deliverable will provide an initial Data Management Plan (DMP). The DMP will detail what kind of data the project is expected to generate and how it will be handled and managed safely during the project period. In addition, it will detail how the data will be curated and preserved, exploited and made accessible through open archiving in the DocEnhance community on Zenodo for verification and reuse after the project has ended. The DMP will be updated at the end of each reporting period in the case of inclusion of new data sets, changes in consortium policies or external factors, and to capture any other new information relevant to the project’s research data management. The DMP will be made openly available after the project end.
