Over the past years, doctoral training has developed new forms (professional -, structured-, joint- or industrial doctorate) to respond to the evolving needs of the job market, be it the academic or business sectors.
The event will reflect on those changes and on the best doctoral training practices in Europe and beyond. It will also provide a platform for discussion on future directions in doctoral training and a European vision of the modern doctorate.
The event will gather about 250 research policy-makers, renowned scientists and representatives of all stakeholders: European organisations, universities, research institutions, large companies and SME's, as well as coordinators of EU-funded projects developing doctoral programmes.
The conference will take place in Riga, on 28 - 29 May 2015 and is free of charge.
