PRIDE Conference 2022
When:  5 and 6 May 2022
Where: Charles University Prague, Czech Republic
What: „Embracing Impact in Doctoral Education: The way forward to solving grand societal challenges?“

Without doubt, there has been a cultural change in doctoral education in the last two decades. The development of the young researcher to an independent academic, well prepared to tackle grand societal problems, in comparison to the previous production of the thesis alone is more and more the focus. However, this is not the only area where we are witnessing a cultural change in research. The societal impact of research has become more and more important in the last years.
Though these cultural changes bring new possibilities, they also provide insecurities, at the level of researchers and management. For many professionals in doctoral education, this is a relatively new field, they either are dealing with it somehow, or see the need to approach the topic in the foreseeable future. The PRIDE Conference therefore aims at providing room for discussions and practical input.

The event is finished.
