Within the European context, there are many initiatives for PhD supervisory training already in existence, but a more systematic approach to this task would be needed. In this landscape, we took the initiative of organizing an informal meeting for experts with an interest and expertise on PhD supervisory training, the Tarragona Think Tank on PhD supervisory training: challenges and good practices, hosted by University Rovira i Virgili (URV, Tarragona). This event allowed both the presentation of individual university experiences and the undertaking of a collective reflection on challenges, impact assessment and the visualisation of an ideal future for PhD supervisory training. Noting the need for more concerted efforts and practices, the present book is precisely a first tangible outcome of this concerted effort. Looking forward, we expect that this book can help setting the basis for the development of a network or alliance between the participating organisations and an ongoing effort aimed at bringing the professionalization of doctoral supervisors to the forefront in education policy at the university level. In sum, we hope that this contribution can help materialising ideas into actions.

Power and Doctoral Supervision Teams engages with the interplay of power generated through the way doctoral supervision teams are structured and how they operate in reality. The stories of experienced academic supervisors and late-stage doctoral students from a cross section of Education, Humanities and Social Sciences teach us what theory and how-to guide books cannot. By using the narrative of stories to explain the models, the lived experience of interpersonal power dynamics shows the promises, pitfalls, joys and frustrations of the various team forms. The book alerts the reader to the great variety of practices and the potential and hazards within. This book is an essential resource for doctoral research students to understand what works in team supervision; for academic supervisors who want to look at options outside of supervision or readjust their current strategies; and for academic administrators as they revise policies that apply to doctoral supervision.
