Abstract: The main goal of the Project is to help acknowledge doctoral studies as an important "third" cycle of education, to define a framework for increasing the quality of all doctoral studies and to develop tools and methods for assessment, validation and certification of the knowledge and skills of PhD students.
The overall objectives of the network are to establish the principles of effective, high quality, Europe-valid doctoral studies and to create the tools for doing this through analysing the existing systems, exchanging experiences and disseminating good practices among all partners.
