AQU Catalunya has carried out during the first months of 2020 the fifth study on the employment of PhDs from Catalan universities. Labor insertion studies coordinated by AQU Catalunya are the result of the interest of social councils to obtain data concerning the quality of the insertion of graduates in the labor market. In particular, studies on the labor insertion of doctors from the Catalan university system are conducted every three years since 2008 (2008, 2011, 2014, 2017 and 2020).

In this edition, 1,945 people with PhDs were surveyed (46% response rate). The survey was carried out before the Covid-19 pandemic to people who obtained their PhD in the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 academic years at Catalan universities.

Detailed results of the report are available on the website of AQU Catalunya.
