One of the specific aims of TRANS-DOC is to develop an overview of doctoral and graduate schools at research universities through a survey, the aim of which is:
to map the variety of research training models and methods;
to identify existing exchange and mobility initiatives;
to identify the main research disciplines covered by the graduate and doctoral schools; and
to enable university leaders to identify potential partners with whom to develop exchange programs and organise future mobility projects.
This survey has developed from an existing template used within Coimbra Group Universities and has been revised by North American partner universities so that it would fit both the European and the North American contexts.
The survey results are now available (link below):
