One of the most important differences is that the new EHEA PhD programs are completely focused on writing and defending the dissertation.
Simply put, the traditional model included both coursework and a research component focused on producing a dissertation. In the new model, however, the first part, coursework, is completed independently in the new official Master programs.
In other words, traditional PhD programs have been adapted so that the teaching takes place during the official Master program, while the new EHEA ^PhD focuses exclusively in writing the dissertation.
