The 6th Conference of ORPHEUS (Organisation for PhD Education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System) will be taking place in Izmir (Turkey), from 27-30 April 2011. The facilities to be provided are excellent, and Izmir – with its pleasant climate – is easy to get to.†The topic of the Izmir Conference is ìPhD Quality Indicators for Biomedicine and Health Sciencesî.† Experts from major European and world organisations and institutions working on PhD education in biomedicine and health sciences and the measurement and assessment of its quality, will provide information, moderate discussion panels, and chair workshops to elaborate on ìORPHEUS PhD Quality Indicators in Biomedicine and Health Sciencesî. The outcome of this interactive activity, the Consensus document, shall not only support the decision makers in making innovations easier in their home institutions, but also guide supervisors, academicians, researchers, PhD students, and all other stakeholders in their mutual, high-priority task of PhD training.†The last (5th) ORPHEUS 2010 Conference in Vienna, with 196 participants, representing 114 institutions from 39 countries, produced a consensus ORPHEUS† document concerned with cooperative networking. This and all previous consensus documents may be found on our web site.
