Doctoral Studies and the Synergy between Higher Education and Research (with simultaneous interpretation)
Participants are invited to discuss the following questions:
- What can national/regional authorities and higher education institutions respectively do to make doctoral studies more attractive?
- Should a common core be defined for European doctoral programmes, and if yes, what should it consist of?
- Within the policy areas of Ministers responsible for higher education, what are the most important obstacles to mobility for doctoral students, and how can these obstacles be overcome?
- In what ways can the development of transferable skills, and a stronger professional awareness of such skills, be integrated in doctoral programmes as training for the wider society? E.g., should transferable skills be taught separately or through “learning by doing”?
Summing up the discussion: What may be the most important elements to follow up in the Bologna Process in the period leading up to 2007?
