Many will become highly qualified knowledge workers for the public and private sectors, while others will pursue careers in academia as the supervisors and academic scholars of tomorrow. Institutions are confronted with the task of best preparing the doctoral candidates for whatever their next career step may be.\n\nThe 2020 EUA-CDE Thematic Workshop will focus on academic career development and the question of how universities can support doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers for careers in academia and what challenges are involved. This includes topics such as skills training for postdoctoral researchers, teaching careers in universities, mental health support, the gender dimension and sustainability in researchers’ careers. The workshop will also serve as a forum to present results of the EUA-CDE Thematic Peer Group on Career development and career tracking.\nThis event will provide an occasion to discuss these issues and identify innovative solutions together with other EUA-CDE members. It may be of interest to anyone with responsibilities and interest in doctoral education (either at the institutional, faculty or disciplinary level) including academic leaders, doctoral education professionals and doctoral candidates.\nFor more information on the meeting, please write to\nFor updates follow @EUACDE on Twitter.\nHosted by:\nIvane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University\n\n \n\n \n \n \n\n \n \nWelcome from the Rector\nWelcome to Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU), the oldest university in Georgia and the first higher education institution in the South Caucasus region.\nFounded in February 1918 as a comprehensive European-style higher education institution, TSU established formal education in the country, creating a local intellectual workforce and paving the way for human development and democracy.

Today, TSU is a research-intensive institution focusing on four core pillars of performance: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. It has 22,000 students, 5,000 staff members and more than 200 partner institutions worldwide.\nEver since Georgia joined the Bologna Process in 2005, internationalisation has been an essential part of TSU’s development strategy. TSU has been actively involved in establishing institutional partnerships with universities around the globe.\n \nAbout Tbilisi\nGeorgia is one of the ancient countries in the Caucasus Region. Georgia’s geographic location has always had a large influence on its history, as well as its economy.
