Last month saw all EPSRC CDT Managers and Administrators meet in London for a one day conference. The conference was organised by Imperial College London and was an informal event aimed to provide an opportunity to meet and establish contacts with other CDT administrators to discuss good practice and challenges of centre administration and management. The day started with a number of talks, including Jim Fleming from EPSRC and Alison Mitchell from Vitae. Alison Mitchell presented the outcomes of a Vitae event held a few weeks earlier that focussed on the development of researchers across doctoral training cohorts. The afternoon sessions were facilitated workshops covering the different aspects of a cohort delivered PhD training programme.
