Since its creation in 2008, CDE has been leading the transformation of doctoral education in Europe, facilitating the impact of universities on European policy developments. Building on the outcomes of EUA’s work on doctoral programmes and research careers, we have been the driving force behind the implementation of the Salzburg Principles and Recommendations and promoting doctoral education as the main intersection between the European higher education and research areas. EUA-CDE reaffirmed its commitment to this with Taking Salzburg forward.
