Report of the meeting "PhD Candidates on Science 2.0"

On Friday May 1st, more than a hundred PhDs from a wide range of disciplines gathered at the Trippenhuis (KNAW) to discuss the current state of science in general and the ‘promotie’ (PhD from here on) specifically. Since PhD candidates from such a broad range of disciplines rarely meet on this level, and in these numbers, there was a lot to discuss. Goals of the day were to bring together PhDs from different fields (from humanities to medicine etc.) and to add to the the current debate that has sparked from ‘Science in Transition’ and ‘Science 2.0’. The KNAW wanted to know how (inter)national policy is shaping the PhDexperience and what issues arise from the quickly changing landscape. Also, this created a unique opportunity to foster mutual understanding between disciplines and open up the stage for creative proposals to improve science and scientific conduct.
