Private Public Partnership (PPP) PhD
The aims are to:
- enhance knowledge exchange and collaboration between industry and academia in order to form a basis for lasting Nordic research collaboration
- offer Nordic PhD-students training in both sectors as well as the possibility to obtain complementary skills, by studying entrepreneurship and management of intellectual property rights (IPR)
- offer enterprises the opportunity to make use of new research-based knowledge in innovation processes through strengthened research competence and collaboration with relevant academic communities
The project manager is the enterprise where the PhD student is employed. The PhD student has at least one supervisor from the enterprise and one from the university.
NordForsk covers up to 50% of the PhD student’s salary as well as costs related to travelling and participation in PhD courses etc. The other 50% part of the salary is covered by the enterprise. Funding is allocated for 3-4 years.
This financing instrument will not be used independently in future calls, but may be included as an element in other funding schemes.
