A mailing list, called Hotdocs, gathers many PhD students from all fields
as well as permanent staff members, mainly in France, and is devoted to
PhD training problems and their connections to R&D and university
development and management. A report arose from discussions and
collaborative work through the HotDocs mailing list.
This report put forwards problems related, by example, to the increasing
number of new PhD students, the propective situation elaborated
from simulations or the qualitive PhD education. Propositions such as a
'PhD contract' or the enhancing of the PhD value towards industries for
solving PhD problems are developed.
In order to enable PhD students, researchers and university teachers from other
countries to get familiar with our work, an english summary of the report is
now available :
