Industry Doctoral Student 2017

Take the opportunity to apply for the program Industry Doctoral Student 2017! SSF allocates 30 million for investment in graduate education to a doctor degree or to, which is new for this year – a licentiate degree.

It is now also possible for people who already have a licentiate degree and who wish to pursue a doctorate, to apply.

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) is allocating SEK 30 million for a programme for Industrial Doctoral/Licentiate Students during 2017. Each grant in the programme provides funding for one industry doctoral or licentiate student’s research and postgraduate studies, in collaboration between industry and academia. The grant runs for
two to five years and shall result in a doctorate (Ph.D.) or licentiate exam. SSF expects to fund 12-24 projects at SEK 2.5 million or 1,25 millon each (including indirect costs) in this call for proposals.

Collaboration between industry and academia is important for the dissemination of knowledge and technology in society. According to its statutes, SSF shall foster the development of strong research environments with high strategic relevance, promote postdoctoral studies and collaboration between academia and industry, and encourage mobility. One instrument to achieve this is to support doctoral/licentiate studies in collaboration between academia and industry.

The deadline for applications is 2:00 pm on 4 May, 2017. The earliest project start is 1 December 2017.
