HGGS to host the 4th transnational Graduate SPIRIT meeting on 13-14 December 2018
The Heidelberg Graduate School for the Humanities and Social Sciences (HGGS) will host the fourth transnational Graduate SPIRIT meeting from 13-14 December 2018. Graduate SPIRIT is an Erasmus+ Project with nine graduate schools from eight European countries that runs from 2017-2020.
The rationale behind Graduate SPIRIT is the strong need for European graduate schools in the social sciences and the humanities to have adequate instruments for stimulating, organising and managing interdisciplinarity and diversity in doctoral training. Currently, best practices are very fragmented and hard to find for individual national graduate schools. In addition, national graduate schools increasingly draw an international PhD community and need to understand the cultural challenges that come with such diversity.
The project will thus develop and test a number of innovations with regard to international, interdisciplinary and intersectorial training and it will make the results available to other graduate schools via an online Innovation Menu to be launched at the end of the project in 2020.
