Summary of the HotDocs report

In this directory, an english summary of the HotDocs report devoted to PhD training in France can be found. This report arose from discussions and collaborative work on Internet through the HotDocs mailing list which gathers many PhD students from all fields and also permanent staff members. This list is devoted to PhD training problems and their connection to R&D and university development and management.

The report is written in french and is rather long (140 pages). In order to enable PhD students, researchers and university teachers from other countries to get familiar with our work, we have produced a short english summary or the report. We hope that you will enjoy its reading and provide us with your feelings and experience on these matter.

Last but not least, we apologize for the bad translation of some technical terms and more generally our non-native knowledge of Sheakspeare's language.
