Intersectoral Curriculum

Programme elements that foster intersectoral mobility

Here several activities, projects and a standard are presented, designed to improve the skills your PhDs need for jobs outside of academia. One is to offer courses on transferable skills to your PhD students. Another is to devote part of the study plans of your PhDs to learning such skills. The third activity focuses on the formal recognition of these skills and competences with a certificate. The last activity is to invite non-academic experts to deliver workshops and lectures. Yet another activity aims to encourage your PhDs to start knowledge-intensive enterprises through inviting experts for workshops and offer targeted training modules and services at your graduate school. The first project entails the organization of a competition among PhDs to enhance their skills. The second project revolves around the education of PhD students about the impact of their scientific work, as defined by the outside world, to encourage them to make an early start with their preparation for job opportunities outside the university.
