Objectives of the Euredocs network

The main objectives of the network are :

  • to identify the doctoral students and young doctorates working on issues related to the europeanisation of higher education and research,
  • to construct an on-line directory,
  • to regularly organize a "doctoral students conference" on these issues. The first one will be held in Paris in June 2004.

Euredocs Activities

They mainly consist in :

  • a website, which is a unique resource for doctoral students and young doctorates, a place for the exchange of information in addition to providing access to a directory
  • a directory collecting detailed information about doctoral students and young doctorates and about their Phds in progress or recently defended on the europeanisation of higher education and research,
  • the organisation of international conferences dedicated to doctoral students and young doctorates.
