YEBO ! Special Event within EUA-CDE Annual Meeting

 YEBO  partners from Europe (including UGent) and South Africa are meeting in Brescia from 12th to 14th June to participate in a series of Workshops within EUA-CDE Annual Meeting


The EUA Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE) invites academic leaders, heads of doctoral schools, doctoral education professionals, early career researchers and everybody interested in the area of doctoral education from Europe and beyond to its 2019 Annual Meeting to reflect on the doctoral education structures, policies and practices that facilitate the societal dimension of the contribution made by doctoral education and other sectors of society.


The YEBO Special-Event will provide an overview of the South African context and the challenges faced. The discussion will cover in particular the common and complementary challenges faced by European and South African universities in the internationalisation of their doctoral education. In particular, it will show how internationalisation can help universities thousands of miles apart bring together their potentials and respective strengths.


Participants: Therina Theron, Senior Director for Research and Innovation, Stellenbosch University; Burtam Fielding, Director of Research Office, University of Western Cape; Laetus Lategan, Senior Director of Research, Central University of Technology; Nadia Lagarde, Deputy-Director at International Relations Department, University of Montpellier.
