Collaborative Doctoral Education in Europe: Research partnerships and employability for researchers. Report on DOC-CAREERS II project

Borrell-Damian, Lidia, Morais, Rita and Smith, John H.

The project “Promoting Collaborative Doctoral Education for Enhanced Career Opportunities” (DOC-CAREERS II) looked at how universities work with their business and other non-university partners in establishing and taking forward research projects in the framework of doctoral education.


It aimed at reflecting on good practices in university-business relations, with particular emphasis on regional dimensions, as well as exploring the employment prospects of doctorate holders and how collaborative schemes can enhance their career prospects.
