20th-25th May 2013, ORPHEUS President and Vice-president represent ORPHEUS at sixth EUA-CDE annual conference

European University Association (EUA)

Warsaw, Poland, 20-25 May 2013. The conference attracted about 300 participants.

The purpose of the conference was to discuss the topic: From „Student to Research, are we on the right track?“ The general consensus was positive, but concerns were raised as to whether the goal of doctoral training was sufficiently defined. The Vice-president gave a short talk on whether a portfolio describing activities not directly related to the PhD project should be included in assessing whether a PhD should be awarded. Other topics included „Quality and internationalisation” And “Supervision and personal development”. Further details on www.eua.be
