After the Bologna framework formally incorporated doctoral education in the three-cycle structure of degrees as part of its nine Action lines in the Berlin Ministers Communiqué in 2003 (Berlin 2003), the AQUA-TNET network devoted a significant part of its activities to follow the subsequent developments in order to help its members understand and meet the demands of the Bologna reforms at the doctoral level. To this end, the network carried out a series of detailed and comprehensive surveys of its members. Interestingly, the results of these independent surveys reveal close similarities with the EUA survey of Doctoral Programmes for the European Knowledge Society (2005) and the sets of guidelines known as the Salzburg Principles (EUA 2005b) and the Salzburg II Recommendations (EUA 2010). The article describes the measures taken by the AQUA-TNET network to design, develop and implement structured doctoral programmes for its members in response to the specific needs as identified by its academic and industry members from those surveys.
