Time to apply for SSF Industrial PhD grants!

Closing date: 19 May 2022 (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. The money will cover funds for research and postgraduate education; the project should start between 1 Jan and 30 June 2023; and the university must be Swedish.

The purpose of the program is to contribute to excellent research in the areas funded by SSF (science, technology and medicine). The research will also promote cross-fertilization between academia and industry and contribute to the education of doctoral students in areas that are strategically relevant and strengthen Sweden’s competitiveness.

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.
