3rd PRIDE annual conference online

The 3rd PRIDE conference, originally planned at Charles University in Prague, will take place online. Thinking of the job profile of professionals in doctoral education, communication skills are one major must-have. Universities are complex organizations with diverse stakeholders who have different needs and goals. Professionals in doctoral education are expected to have an awareness of the interplay of these different interests in their working environment and to be able to communicate with diverse stakeholders.

Register for the online event here.

►The conference takes place on 5 and 6 May 2021.
