Nacaps generates versatile research data on the study conditions for doctorates, career aims and professional development, as well as on the general life situation of doctoral candidates and doctorate holders in Germany. The first results of the study are accessible via a data portal:

The study results will be

  • made available to Nacaps’ partner HEIs for monitoring, controlling and quality management via our data portal
  • prepared for the expert public and decision makers in higher education and science policy in the form of reports, as a basis for evidence-based monitoring of young researchers
  • made available to the scientific community for research purposes via the DZHW Research Data Centre (FDZ) in the form of anonymised data sets (scientific use files).

Your participation will influence future decisions, which are relevant for early career researchers.
