Under the umbrella of the Arqus Alliance, the University of Granada and the University of Graz are co-organising the “Granada Arqus PhD Week: PhD, and now? Explore new professional opportunities beyond the world of academia”.

The PhD Week will gather together more than 40 doctoral researchers, PhD graduates and career development experts from the nine Arqus universities to participate in a 4-day intense training course aimed at:

- Supporting PhD candidates and early post-docs in navigating the challenge of career possibilities outside academia and developing the necessary hard and soft skills for this endeavour.
- Offering students an international and multicultural environment.

Making participants aware of their competencies and enabling them to make these skills explicit to others.

- Teaching students to develop entrepreneurial (and intrapreneurial) projects.
- Helping PhD candidates and early post-docs to recognise the value of their doctorate and skills, and increasing their employability opportunities in other professions.

The workshops will be taught by trainers experienced in PhD support and career development fields, offering perspectives from diverse international backgrounds.
