Podcast: 4 skills for researchers of the future
In this podcast our colleague Margaux Kersschot explains which skills researchers of the future will need:
The competence profile consists of a table per competence category. Each table contains the title of the competence category and a description of the specific competences that are part of this category. Finally, these descriptions are supplemented by a number of concrete examples of activities and courses that can contribute to the development of competences within this category.
Please consult the PhD regulations of your faculty for a list of activities and courses that can be valorised as part of the doctoral study programme.
We advise you to review this competence profile at the start of your PhD and analyse your strengths and weaknesses. Based on this analysis, you can determine which competences you definitely want to sharpen during your doctoral training. Do this in close consultation with your supervisor (s).
The Antwerp Doctoral School has its own varied range of courses (the ADS offer) that are free for doctoral researchers who follow the doctoral study programme. In addition, other services of the University of Antwerp also organize courses that can be valorised as part of the doctoral study programme. In addition, an inter-university training offer was developed in collaboration with the four other Flemish universities.
Participating in courses, conferences or summer schools can cost a significant amount of money. The Antwerp Doctoral School provides a virtual financial backpack in the form of educational credit to ensure that you can undertake activities in Belgium and abroad on your own initiative.
The practical information about the doctoral study programme can be found under Phase 2 (annual progress report) and Phase 4 (minimum requirements and completion of the study program) of the Doctoral Procedure.
