  1. 1. Doctoral Schools at the University of Vienna Dr. Karl-Lueger Ring 1 A – 1010 Vienna, Austria http://international.univie.ac.at
  2. 2. <ul><li>National / Institutional Framework </li></ul><ul><li>Universities Legal Act 2002 (UG2002) </li></ul><ul><li>Univ. of Vienna Development Plan 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Excellence Initiative of the Austrian Science Fund </li></ul><ul><li>Austrian Government Policy Statement </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>International Level </li></ul><ul><li>European Research Area (ERA) </li></ul><ul><li>Bologna Study Architecture </li></ul><ul><li>European Researcher‘s Charter </li></ul><ul><li>EU Code of Conduct for Recruitment </li></ul><ul><li>EUA Involvement to further define Doctoral Programmes as the third cycle in the Bologna Process </li></ul>
  4. 4. Glasgow Declaration (2005) The design of doctoral programmes will ensure: that while the central element of doctoral programmes remains the advancement of knowledge through research, doctoral training will meet the needs of an employment market that is wider than academia, through the development of research competence and transferable skills; that doctoral programmes correspond to three to four years full time work; that joint trans-national doctoral programmes are strengthened, and that doctoral candidates are considered both as students and as early stage researchers with commensurate rights .
  5. 5. <ul><li>Salzburg 2005: „Ten Basic Principles&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>The core component of doctoral training is the advancement of knowledge through original research. </li></ul><ul><li>Embedding in institutional strategies and policies. </li></ul><ul><li>The importance of diversity. </li></ul><ul><li>Doctoral candidates as early stage researcher. </li></ul><ul><li>The crucial role of supervision and assessment. </li></ul><ul><li>European Researcher‘s Charter </li></ul><ul><li>EU Code of Conduct f. Recruitment </li></ul><ul><li>EUA Involvement to further define Doctoral Programmes as the third cycle in the Bologna Process </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Salzburg 2005: „Ten Basic Principles &quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Achieving critical mass. </li></ul><ul><li>Doctoral programmes should operate within an appropriate time. </li></ul><ul><li>The promotion of innovative structures. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing mobility. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensuring appropriate funding. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Salzburg Recommendations (2005) Bergen Communique (2005) 5. The crucial role of supervision and assessment: In respect of individual doctoral candidates, arrangements for supervision and assessment should be based on a transparent contractual framework of shared responsibilities between doctoral candidates, supervisors and the institution (and where appropriate including other partners) III. Future challenges and priorities Higher education and research … Considering the need for structured doctoral programmes and the need for transparent supervision and assessment, … Implications of the „Salzburg Principles“ : Example
  8. 8. EURODOC Supervision and Training Charter for ESR (2004) European Charter for Researchers & Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (2005) Supervision and managerial duties … With regard to their role as supervisors …, senior researchers should build up a constructive and positive relationship with the early stage researchers … Supervision … the proposed supervisors are sufficiently expert in supervising research, have the time, knowledge, experience, expertise and commitment to be able to offer the trainee appropriate support and provide for the necessary progress and review procedures, as well as the necessary feedback mechanisms” Complaints/appeals … appropriate procedures … to deal with complaints/appeals of researchers, including those concerning conflicts between supervisor(s) and early-stage researchers.
