The Företagsforskarskolor programme gives the universities, together with the business sector, the opportunity to create thematic graduate schools.
Background of the programme
Call for proposals
Strengthening research capacity in areas important to both universities and the business sector requires a continuous supply of researchers. Industrial doctoral students help to enhance competence for the companies, and together with the research conducted, this strengthens the companies’ competitiveness.
To achieve this, both the universities and the business sector need to engage in creating a relevant, high-quality third cycle programme. The research must meet the companies’ needs, but the universities guarantee that the objectives of the third cycle programme can be attained.
The programme’s contribution to strong research and educational environments
Företagsforskarskolor must have a common scientific focus and contribute to develop and strengthen the third cycle programme and profiling the environment. The programme must also foster long-term relationships with the business sector.
