SSF Industrial PhD applications

Closing date: 25 May 2021 (by kl.14)

Cooperation between industry and academia is important for the dissemination of knowledge and technology in society. That is why the Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, is investing 30 million SEK in industrial doctoral students. The grant runs during the training period for the doctoral students and must result in a doctoral degree.

SSF expects to grant 12 projects, each worth up to 2.5 million SEK. This initiative applies to people who have not yet been admitted to postgraduate education. During the grant period, the doctoral student must conduct research and be at least 80 percent employed at a company, and have two supervisors, one at the university and one at the company. The money will cover funds for research and postgraduate education. The university must be Swedish.
