Vienna, 04 April 2014

The discussion groups covered the following items:

A. ECTS credits for the third cycle.

Based on the survey of the current situation in Europe, the discussion focused on the different character of the third cycle compared to bachelor’s and master’s studies; and to the great discrepancy of approaches among countries.

Detailed notes were taken as to the possibility of using ECTS credits for ‘measuring’ partly or on the whole doctoral studies in chemistry. Partner (P1) undertook the task of drafting a document (DELIVERABLE 7) based on the notes, the current national situations and the relevant position papers edited by Europe-wide bodies. The document is to be presented to the large conference (DELIVERABLE 9).

B. Diploma Supplement for the third cycle.

Based on the analysis of labour market needs, the discussion focused on the different character of third cycle learning outcomes compared to those of bachelor’s and master’s studies; and to the great discrepancy of approaches among countries.

 

It was as well decided that the Diploma Supplement template would not be modified, and any elucidations would appear as comments.

Detailed notes were taken as to the possibility adapting the Diploma Cycle to the distinct features of doctoral studies in chemistry. Partner (P1) undertook the task of drafting a document (DELIVERABLE 7) based on the notes, the current national situations and the relevant position papers edited by Europe-wide bodies. The document is to be presented to the large conference (DELIVERABLE 9).

C. Register of experts

The symposium agreed on admittance criteria in the trans-national register of experts on third cycle structured programmes in chemistry and the use of ‘Bologna tools’. The criteria are to be adopted by the large-scale conference (DELIVERABLE 9).
