Details

This evaluation carried out by EPSRC is a review of EPSRC funded doctoral education.

The goal is to provide some recommendations with an ambition to increase UK research and innovation activity.

The report is split into two sections.

  1. The first section provides context for EPSRC’s current doctoral support and recent Government strategies. It also covers information on EPSRC’s current mechanisms of support.
  2. The second section considers the following aspects of doctoral education:
    • the value of doctoral education: to the individual and their career, to the research landscape and to employers
    • skills and experiences: what skills and experiences should be provided by a doctorate
    • student population: how to enable a more diverse student population, including increased mobility between academia and industry
    • how the doctorate is provided: including different qualifications, ways of providing the doctoral experience and how support is provided
    • ways of identifying, developing, and responding to strategic priorities: how can the landscape respond to changing directions and needs.

This is the integrated website of the seven research councils, Research England and Innovate UK.
