This conference will address the following themes:

the global standing, positioning and reputation of the UK doctorate;
the ways in which the doctorate makes an impact, economically, socially and culturally;
the ways in which the UK doctorate, and the doctoral student experience, are evolving in response to changing expectations, opportunities, challenges and requirements.
