The International Doctoral Education Research Network (IDERN)

IDERN is an open network bringing together researchers of doctoral education from all over the world to share resources and ideas. The Network aims to broaden and expand the field of research into doctoral education and provide opportunities for researchers to work towards future research collaborations. Visit our webpage at:

Network members meet every two or three years, usually for two days alongside an international conference. The next meeting is on 25-26 June 2020 after the International Academic Identities Conference (22-24 June 2020), both to be held in Roskilde (Denmark).
