Who can activate a PhD programme with the University

Any entity pursuing an economic activity, regardless of its legal status and funding arrangements, can activate and co-finance a PhD programme, contributing to the growth and development of its innovation potential. This includes companies, bodies, foundations, associations, local health boards, consortia, networks and associations of companies, professional associations, etc.

What you can work on

This opportunity is reserved not only for research and development in technology and production, but for all areas of a company: from management to human resources, from general legal aspects to brand protection, from administrative management to communication, and even to the development of new areas considered strategic for the company.

What are the advantages for companies

For your company, activating the PhD programme means:

  • cost-effective investment
    by sharing the costs of the PhD scholarship with the University;
  • competitive advantage
    because you can count on a unique and innovative perspective to develop a topic of your interest;
  • training of human potential in your specific field
    with a view to potential future employment;
  • strategic networking
    through collaboration with highly qualified university research groups.
