Survey about Professionals in Doctoral Education

In order to collect the data to reach further conclusions the PRIDE consortium conducted an online Survey. In autumn 2014 it was sent out to over 500 contacts asking about areas of activities, their skills and knowledge and their contributions to doctoral education.

Overall there were 222 respondents (response rate: 33% from 29 countries/regions). 

If you are interested in more detailed results of the Survey, please read the Survey 2 Report Working Paper.[read more]

“For all university staff seeking to foster the best education for the doctoral candidates, and support the best research-trained professionals for tomorrow’s society at large,
this book might be seen as a new « Guide for the Perplexed » (Maimonides).
