Starting a PRIDE Association for Professionals in Doctoral Education?


The PRIDE project “Professionals in Doctoral Education” (http://www.pride-project.eu) is approaching the finishing line. The aims of the project, that will end by next 30 September 2016, have been reached, in particular:

– Contributing to the professionalization of administrative staff in the field of European doctoral education in order to provide better support to PhD supervisors, PhD candidates and external stakeholders;
Establishing a social network for professionals to facilitate the dissemination and exploitation of results and prepare the basis for creating an EU network for professionals in doctoral education.

In order to capitalize on the project results, the idea of the project partnership leaded by the University of Vienna is to establish an association in order to stay connected beyond the project lifetime and to further develop and follow up the implementation of doctoral education practices.
So as to get inputs and contributions on this idea, the PRIDE project has developed an online survey.

Fill in the short survey to contribute to the creation of the PRIDE Association!

The results of the Survey and other further results of activities project will be presented at the Final Conference of the PRIDE project that will take place in Berlin hosted by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Humboldt Graduate School) on September 8-9, 2016.
