“Supervising a PhD project is a challenging task. Next to monitoring the quality of research and the progress of a PhD project, supervisors also need to safeguard conditions that enable PhD candidates to excel and stay healthy, happy and motivated."
"In this session, we will discuss a number of “golden rules” that help ensure that the conditions for a successful PhD project are in place. These rules can be seen as a set of best practices with regard to the communication between supervisors and their PhD candidates and the organisation and planning of a PhD project. In the meeting, supervisors will be asked to give feedback on a first draft with golden rules that is prepared by the EGSH PhD council.”
