The Future of Graduate Education in Physics and Chemistry

There has been extensive debate and discussion in the past few years on the nature of PhD education. 

A meeting held on 18 November 2009 at the Royal Irish Academy focused on PhD education in chemistry and physics, and their related interdisciplinary areas. 

The participants were largely those in third-level establishments who are responsible for delivering PhD education, and most chemistry and physics departments with PhD programmes in Ireland were represented.
