Bringing together researchers from different European countries the Workshop provides a platform to exchange ideas about the various formats in which European universities and their industrial partners work together in the field of doctoral education. There will also be talks on how to finance a doctorate and on the non-academic job market. The initiators of the workshop, Maureen McKelvey and Guido Bünstorf are convinced that the incorporated knowledge of doctoral graduates is a central transfer channel and that the early involvement of industrial partners in doctoral projects has the potential to strengthen this transfer.
