DocEnhanced focuses on transferable skills, as these skills facilitate the transition into employment and are widely applicable, regardless of the scientific fields and chosen career path. The core output of the project is an open online platform which will function as a one-stop-shop for researchers in all career stages to access transferable skills intelligence and training in research education.

The major outputs of the project are a recommended transferable skills curriculum for PhD programmes, a novel course concept and material, and an open-access career-tracking survey. The project will focus on transferable skills, as these skills facilitate the transition into employment and are widely applicable, regardless of scientific fields and chosen career path. All project outputs will be provided as freely available Open Educational Resources through an online platform, the DocEnhance Platform. This platform will function as a comprehensive, user-friendly and equal access point for transferable skills intelligence and training in research education for researchers in all career stages, as well as a community and networking site, designed to live beyond the project lifetime.
