Funding sought for new intake of industrial PhD students
The research school Smart Industry Sweden creates synergies and collaborations between companies, universities and regions. Funding is now being sought for a new intake of both companies and industrial doctoral students.
“We contribute with cutting-edge expertise and strengthen the companies' competitiveness,” says Peter Thorvald, director of Smart Industry Sweden.
The research school is a collaboration between Halmstad University, Jönköping University, Skövde University, University West and Mid Sweden University in Umeå.
“The investment in the research school is a unique opportunity for companies to develop tomorrow's skills. It is also an entrance to a network between universities and companies where you get to be a part of new research and make many contacts. We are seeking funding to create a new intake of industrial doctoral students and for that we need companies' support” says Peter Thorvald.
The industrial doctoral students combine postgraduate education with employment at a company. Even those already employed at a company can apply to become an industrial doctoral student within Smart Industry Sweden, which increases the skills for both the employee and the employer.
