Abstract: Traditional structures and cultures of doctoral research training are being challenged in many countries around the world. In Australia, doctoral programs in Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) are challenging traditional modes of university science-based research training by integrating professional development closely with industry needs. A key emphasis is on producing "industry-ready" graduates who possess a broader educational experience closely aligned with the needs of research users. This chapter focuses on how the education and training culture of doctoral students working in or funded by CRCs, differs from that of the traditional science-based training culture, and to what degree the more innovative culture of CRCs is seen to be achieving its goals in light of the demands of an ever-challenging knowledge society.
