The European University Association (EUA) will be following up the EAHEP project with the project Cooperation on Doctoral Education between Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe (CODOC). CODOC will study trends in doctoral education in different developing regions of the world and provide occasions for dialogue and networking in order to foster stronger doctoral education partnerships between Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Cross-border collaboration in doctoral education has intensified and new and innovative forms of delivery, such as joint doctoral degrees, have gained strategic attention from many universities. Universities in developing countries can use collaborations to build capacity and to get access to know-how, while European universities benefit from partner universities in specific locations of research interest, fruitful exchange of students, opportunities to jointly conceive curricula that are of greater international relevance, exchange of staff, etc.
