Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the four UK Higher Education funding bodies have commissioned CFE and partners from HECSU and Sheffield University to carry out research into the value and impact of doctoral training.
The aim is to develop understanding of the difference doctoral graduates make in the workplace and the extent to which doctoral training drives innovation and growth. Good evidence on this is vital to inform decisions on future investment in doctoral training. The results will also provide a valuable resource for those who advise doctoral students and graduates about career choices.
RCUK want to contact anyone who graduated with a doctorate between 2003 and 2006. Please support this important project by forwarding information on to doctoral graduates or other contacts and networks that may be able to help. Your support will be pivotal to the success of the project. Please feel free to make use of the attached flyer.
