Project description: 
Doctoral education is currently at a crossroads, characterised by the coexistence of two paradigms, one associated with a more traditional view, the other associated with a more instrumental view of what this education is, or should be. The project aims to understand the notion or concept of doctoral education prevalent, in Portugal, in the perspectives of both universities and doctoral students. In parallel, and with the aim of framing these perspectives, the study will also promote a characterisation of the offer of doctoral education in the country.
