Eurodoc in Europe

34 member states
A european vision
4 stages in a researcher's career :

General issues for the doctorate are common to the entire community of early stage researchers across the Union, and beyond

(as in Russia, Azerbaijan, Serbia, Norway, Ukraine, Switzerland etc.)

The Member States & Europe : situation
"By the end of 2011, Member States should have strategies in place to train enough researchers to meet their national R&D targets and to promote attractive employment conditions in public research institutions. Gender and dual career considerations should be fully taken into account in these strategies "(1)

the number of Researchers
the training of Researchers
A Weak ground
An inconstant elite group
A strong ground
A sustainable development
for Research & HE
Both elites and newcommers
are pushed-up
in a virtuous circle
Existing good practices
New Challenges in the European Area
Young Scientist's 1st International Baku Forum

the European Charter & the
Code of Conduct for the recruitement

An existing mechanism
To improve :
We need at least :
To have the Charter & Code implemented (from state regulations to Institutions & the Horizon2020)
Encourage urgently our Institutions to participate to the HRS4R
A collective excellency

Eruodoc objectives

To represent doctoral candidates and junior researchers at the European level in matters of education, research, and professional development of their careers.

To advance the quality of doctoral programmes and the standards of research activity in Europe.

To promote the circulation of information on issues regarding young researchers; organize events, take part in debates and assist in the elaboration of policies about Higher Education and Research in Europe.

To establish and promote co-operation between national associations representing doctoral candidates and junior researchers within Europe.
Eurodoc vision
ERA and EHEA in which doctoral candidates and junior researchers are
duly recognised and respected for the essential roles they play.
We need at least 1 more million researchers in Europe
Gender balance in Europe
Proportion of female PhDs (2007)
Gender overview
27 % of women researcher (FTE)
45 % of Doctoral Candidates... ?
Eurodoc surprising data:

a higher proportion of men feel disadvantaged because of their gender !?

• Which means what ?
Larger number of womans without
No consideration for woman specific situations
(pregnancy periods, more difficulty to find employment on the job markets, etc.) ?
Men - Professional enrolling
<--> Woman "other" status ?
How many woman's are part of the
drop outs
Very small absorption by the Academy
Lack of Industrial investment

1. Europe : 46%
of Researchers in Business (Japan = 68% ; US=79%)"
2. 2011 : creation of the Industrial Doctorate on Marie-Curie Actions model
3. Objective of 3 % of GDP invested in Research (UE=1,8% ; US=2,8% ; Japan=3,4%)
• Eurodoc (not) surprising data:
1. 80% of DC
know that
there are few chances
to get a job in the academy
2. 80 % think
they have good chances
to get a job in the academy
