The Staff Week on Best Practices for International Collaboration at Doctorate Level is a three-day training activity that will focus on the challenges and the advantages of different forms of “structured mobility” at Doctorate level in the context of the debate on doctoral training in Europe and the role of European university networks in the future European Education Area. It is organised by Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
The target audience for this activity are: programme directors, staff at Doctoral Schools, International Relations staff, academic staff involved in doctoral education and university managers.
Registration is open to staff from all higher education institutions or organisations, though preference will be given to YERUN members.
The sessions will consist of conferences by experts followed by Q&A, roundtables and discussion groups, focusing on both practical aspects of international collaboration at PhD level, as well as general issues. The programme includes a special session on Doctoral Education in the EU, to be held on November 16.
Participation is free of charge, though participants may need to cover the social events. A certificate will be given to all attendees.
There will be plenty of opportunities for networking, as well as a cultural visit and a conference dinner.
The conference dinner will take place on Thursday Nov 15, 9pm (cost: 35€) at:
