In December, Project partners, UNIVIE presented a REVALORISE+ project poster at the final event of Doc.Enhance in Lisbon.

Photographed (L-R)  are Eva Hnatkova, Open Science Coordinator at National Library of Technology & UCT in Prague and former EURODOC president Lucas Zinner, Head of the Research Services and Career Development, UNIVIE and Chair of the Association for Professionals in Doctoral Education (PRIDE Network) with Bärbel Tress , a research career expert and advisor in Tress Academic who offer guidance and advice for PhD candidates on their PhD journey and career plans.

Here they are discussing the 3-month REVALORISE+ pilot training programme developed to support researchers, especially PhDs, valorise their Social Sciences and Humanities research. Our resource, soon to be made freely available, will help strengthen soft skills, and valorisation capabilities, develop entrepreneurial skills and enhance the impact of their research.

The poster proved a good fit with the DocEnhance project, which aims to enhance skills intelligence and integration into existing PhD programmes. After developing an open-access platform with transferable skills courses for doctoral education, as well as a career-tracking survey for doctoral graduates, DocEnhance partners presented the project’s results in a final event which was widely attended by representatives of Higher Education Institutions and networks, doctoral schools, students, early-career researchers, policymakers, as well as employers from outside academia intent on improving doctoral graduates’ transition to the labour market.
