Artificial intelligence, data management and the digital world of doctoral education

This year, the EUA-CDE Thematic Workshop was organised in the form of online sessions on 21-22 January 2021. The EUA-CDE community of more than 260 universities gathered to discuss emerging issues related to digitalisation from the perspective of doctoral education.

Nowadays, digitalisation plays an important role in our society as it daily affects our lives. This is also true for the whole research process, including the collection and analysis of data, the interaction between researchers across geographical boundaries or the communication of results. In this context, artificial intelligence and other forms of data-driven research have increasingly been the focus of discussions as they provide new and unexpected opportunities, but also raise questions related to the risks attached to the development of such new technologies.

The 2021 EUA-CDE Thematic Workshop focused on the role of doctoral education in the context of these rapid technological and conceptual changes, how doctoral schools are influenced and how they can make efficient use of emerging digital technologies. It discussed the training and skills needs of doctoral candidates and provide a forum for an exchange of reflections and good practices.   

This event provided an occasion to discuss these issues and identify innovative solutions together with other EUA-CDE members and stakeholders active in this field.

The workshop’s programme was divided into two main parts. It combined two webinars open to anyone with an interest in doctoral education and several online sessions reserved to EUA-CDE members only.
