Industrial doctorate

Published in News

The Generalitat of Catalonia (Regional Government) is currently fostering Industrial Doctorates. The aim of the Industrial Doctorates Plan is to contribute to the competitiveness and internationalisation of Catalan industry, strengthen the tools for recruiting the talent generated in the country and place future PhD holders in the right place to carry out R&D&I projects in a company or a public institution. 


The essential element of the industrial doctorate process is the research project carried out at a company or institution, where doctoral students will further develop their research training in collaboration with a university or research centre, and which is the object of a doctoral thesis. Therefore, the industrial doctorates act as a bridge for knowledge transfer and encourage closer ties between Catalan industry, universities and research centres.
