An industrial phd is a three-year industrially focused research project and phd education which is carried out in a collaboration between a company, an industrial phd candidate and a university.
The student shares her/his working time between the company and the university, and spends all the work time on the industrial phd project.
Why an industrial phd project?
The project allows the industrial phd to carry out a research project where results are applied in an enterprise setting.
The company gets a candidate able to carry out a high quality research project and create results that can lead to commercial gain.
At the same time, the company strengthens its relations to existing and new collaboration partners at the university.
The public sector research institution strengthens its relations to the business sector, and a foundation for new research is created.
