Opening Doors: Networked PhD Education

Since February 1, 2021 till April 30, 2022

Contact person: Mgr. Michal Janíčko

OPENING DOORS is an EU funded project that addresses a gap that often exists in PhD education globally – the opportunity to work collaboratively with other early career researchers from different disciplines and countries on “real-world”, applied problems. Through extensive stakeholder engagement with PhD employers and graduates working in open science and open innovation networks across Europe, and PhD educators and employers based in academia, the Opening Doors team have come to an understanding of the kinds of competencies and personal attributes that are valued in these settings. Based on this understanding, we have iteratively co-designed an open, online educational course in Open Science and Open Innovation with our network of stakeholders, entitled: “Opening Your Research To Collaborative Futures”.

The National Training Fund is one of the project partners alongside University College Dublin (Ireland), Aarhus University (Denmark), Maynooth University (Ireland) and Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (Japan).
