The Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation (IDS), opens up opportunities for collaboration between Umeå university researchers and the private and public sectors through jointly-funded research projects.
IDS doctoral candidates form a multidisciplinary research group and undertake a specially-designed, generic skills-based course package during the programme that prepares them for work outside of academia.
These projects maintain a high level of scientific quality and also generate public benefit, thereby laying a foundation for competitiveness and operational development.
Doctoral research projects will be funded jointly by the university and an external partner; each part will contribute 50 percent of the doctoral candidate’s salary. IDS also announces seed money for researchers in order to establish and develop a collaboration with an external party, with the aim of submitting an application to IDS doctoral candidate project.
Charlotta Sundin is the coordinator of the Industrial Doctoral School of Research and Innovations at Umeå universitet and she will tell us more about the opportunites for the Life science industry.
