Innovation Fund Denmark's Industrial PhD Program

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.

An Industrial PhD student is employed in the private sector company and enrolled at the university.

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.
