ARMDOCT - Reform of teaching at doctoral level in Armenia, according to the needs of academia, industry and current EU practices
The ARMDOCT project addresses an urgent need in Reforming Doctoral Education (DE) in Armenia in line with the Salzburg Principles with the emphasis on policy, legal framework (including by-laws) and institutional procedures supporting integrative and internationally-oriented doctoral studies involving universities, research institutions and industry.
Overall objective of the project is Reforming Doctoral Education (DE) in Armenia in line with the Salzburg Principles with the emphasis on policy, legal framework (including by-laws) and institutional procedures supporting integrative and internationally-oriented doctoral studies involving universities, research institutions and industry, and resulting in the establishment of Doctoral Schools.
Both the partners from the EU Member States and Armenia should reinforce their strengths and experience, previous lessons learnt, to overcome the developmental lag of Armenia in the organization of Doctoral education, research internationalization and support in strengthening the link between teaching, research and industry. It should be done considering shortages not only on the national, but also institutional levels.
This concept leads the project partnership to defining concrete project aims as:
Capacity building of the staff from HEIs/SRIs, Ministry of Education and Science of Armenia (MESA);
Development of new policy and legal framework, including by-laws for doctoral education in Armenia;
Development/revision of institutional policies, procedures, and tools;
Establishment and operationalization of new Doctoral Schools creating synergies between HEIs, SRI and industry;
Promoting networking and long-term cooperation between Armenian and European HEIs for further internationalization of higher education research in Armenia.
