Doctoral education matters for Europe more than ever before

Ambitious targets to tackle economic and social challenges by increasing research spending in turn mean that many more trained researchers will be needed. Doctoral education is a central part of this scenario. Across Europe, doctoral candidates are working at the interface between education, research and innovation. However, the changing nature of research and how it is used pose new challenges for universities in developing the next generation of researchers. This year the European University Association Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) is celebrating its first decade of providing both a framework and practical guidance for its 242 member institutions from 35 countries across Europe.
