The Careers Paths of Doctorate Holders Striving to achieve sustainable growth, modern societies are becoming increasingly dependent on science, technology and innovation that have direct economic and social impact on the development of our society.
As highly-qualified individuals with scientific and technological knowledge and skills, doctorate holders are of key importance. Countries should fully exploit their potential and talents since this increases diversity, enrich human knowledge and improve understanding. To better understand the characteristics of doctorate holders and to obtain key answers to questions related to this population, we analysed and prepared a publication on the basis of statistical data obtained with the statistical survey on the careers of doctorate holders.
The purpose of this publication is to inform the general public about the key findings on the population of doctorate holders obtained with the mentioned statistical survey. They are presented with short comments, charts, tables and infographics and divided into five chapters: demographic characteristics, educational characteristics, labour market, research activity and international mobility.
