MetadataShow full item record
During 2015-2016, DION, the interest organization for doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers at NTNU, conducted an analysis of the various PhD budget (aka driftsmidler or working capital) related definitions, best practices and processes in place throughout NTNU. All faculties were invited to respond to a questionnaire regarding PhD budget practices, and a total of 7 faculty and 10 department responses (9 of which only responded to the duty work part which is covered in a concurrent report) were received. The following report presents findings from this survey. A variety of definitions and processes exists, some of which need unification and refinement. Based on the analysis as well as legacy material and DION case history, measures are proposed as summarized in the conclusion how to improve the current system for doctoral candidates.
