So-called implementation doctorates have been carried out in Poland for only a few years, but every year they are becoming more and more popular. As it turned out, they bridged a gap in Polish post-master education. Their specificity – locating between science and economy, unfortunately, generates a lot of formal, administrative, and “ideological” problems. Both the legal aspects of the “Implementation Doctorates” Program and the issues related to the coordination of this program with “regular” education at doctoral schools are open to doubt. During the Katowice panel discussion, matters related to the evaluation of the progress of postgraduate students (annual reports), settlement of allocated funds for the use of research infrastructure, shifts in the research plans, and determining the conditions for the termination of the doctoral student’s participation in the “Implementation Doctorate” Program will be discussed.
Speakers invited to the panel:
- Chairperson: prof. Tadeusz Wieczorek, Silesian University of Technology, Katowice
- DSc Associate Prof. Andrzej Swinarew, University of Silesia in Katowice, Katowice
