How to valorise my PhD? First aid in planning your career path, Authors: Van Damme, I., Kerkhofs, S., & Nivelle, N.

In 2012, a pilot project was launched at Hasselt University, Belgium, entitled ‘How to valorise my PhD? First aid in planning your career path’. It was a two-stage project, aimed at PhD students and postdocs from across all disciplines, aiming at supporting young researchers in developing their professional career.

Conflict Consultation - Dealing with crises and conflicts

Everybody working at a doctoral school knows several cases of conflict between doctoral students and their supervisors. Ways need to be found to deal with each case seperately but also to find an overall procedure to foster the needs of both sides. Humboldt Graduate School developed an interesting format of professional counselling and mediation, which proved to be highly effienct and may act as a role model for other Higher Education Institutions.

We believe in knowledge-sharing as a competitive advantage and try to achieve this with interactive webinars organised by professionals, for professionals. Our first webinar aimed at professionals who want to offer support measures for supervisors such as trainings within their organizations.

Watch the webinar with Stan Taylor, author of the "Handbook for Doctoral Supervisors" and Honorary Fellow in the School of Education at Durham University as well as with Melita Kovačević, Vice-President of the PRIDE Association!
