Training Scientists for the Future – Is the PhD still up to date? – Falling Walls Circle Round Table 2023
The PhD is the foundation of the academic enterprise, the first piece of original work done by a researcher. With the significant changes seen within science and the expectations broader society has of science, early career researchers have to be prepared to address grand societal challenges such as climate crisis and biodiversity loss, and deal with the new economic demands and technologies by industry. This Round Table will discuss if the way we conceive of PhD training is still up-to-date, and how the reform of assessment and evaluation could affect academic culture.
