Working Groups -
Please note: the working groups have separate Zoom links.
Working Group 1 “The Future of Doctoral Supervision. How do we support good supervision across institutions and borders?” will meet on campus only.
Working Group 2 “Marrying top-down and bottom-up: Achieving organically grown cooperation at the doctoral level”
Cooperation at the level of doctoral education develops in different ways. On the one hand, it can grow organically by partners with matching research interests finding themselves and wanting to collaborate. The typical co-tutelles are one example of this bottom-up type of collaboration agreements. Often, they require massive administrative management, as each contract may have to be negotiated separately.
Working Group 3 "Integrating mobility into different formats of doctoral education”
If we recognise the vision of a European Research Area with free circulation of researchers, knowledge, technology, and innovation, how might we embed mobility for new researchers as part of their doctoral education? The aspiration for cross-border mobility and greater internationalization of doctoral education offers the prospect of building diverse research teams, driving impactful knowledge exchange, multilateral collaborations, and brain circulation to solve our global challenges. Doctoral candidates versed in working across institutions and across country borders can be a source of innovation and attract research income for their institutions. Mobility for doctoral candidates allows them to discover new settings and gain exposure to new actors and contacts, manifesting higher levels of student satisfaction and enabling timely completion rates. However - we also know that mobility in doctoral education is administratively, logistically, financially, and sometimes even culturally difficult to implement and operationalise. The format of the doctoral education and the differences in award conditions across institutions can appear incompatible and create barriers to exchange. This Staff Week Working Group aims to facilitate discussion between participants to clearly demarcate the challenges to mobility. Secondly, we will think forward to some of the solutions and new ideas to work across different formats of doctoral education, and to conceptualise innovative training to promote mobility and circulation of research talent.

End of Day 3
Bremen is wonderful.
Get to know the charming Hanseatic city of Bremen in a short video and be inspired.
Meet the Stars of Bremen like the famous Bremen Town Musicians, the Town Hall (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and many more.
The University of Bremen was founded 50 years ago.
1971 built in the green meadows on the rim of the city, the Campus is today a fully integrated part of Bemen with companies, residences and shops in the vicinity. However, you can still reach the relaxing nature easily. We invite you to have a short walk to get to know some of the campus buildings and facilities.
