Receive funding through the industrial phd scheme
In a hectic work schedule with scarce resources, it may be a challenge for businesses to find the time and money to develop new ideas and products. Part of the solution may be to hire a PhD student.
If you employ a PhD student from Aalborg University, you may apply for a grant over a three-year period under the Industrial PhD scheme offered by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Once you have employed the PhD student, he or she will fall under the category of industrial PhD student.
Industrial PhD students work equal hours at your business and at Aalborg University. However, all their work will relate to the same project.
