Eurodoc Report on ‘Transferable Skills and Competences’

Eurodoc - the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers - has published a report on Identifying Transferable Skills and Competences to Enhance Early-Career Researchers’ Employability and Competitiveness by the Eurodoc Doctoral Training Working Group. The report contains a skills matrix with nine categories focusing on essential research, career development, digital, communication, cognitive, interpersonal, teaching & supervision, enterprise, and mobility skills for ECRs.

The skills matrix consists of a total of 66 transferable skills as summarised in the Eurodoc Transferable Skills for Early-Career Researchers Infographic. The aim of the matrix is to promote awareness and increase uptake and training in transferable skills among ECRs and higher education institutions. The report serves as a starting point to help ECRs identify the transferable skills they have already obtained and still need to acquire.
