URV: Leading projects in the industrial PhD


The Industrial Doctorates Plan is a Government of Catalonia initiative, in collaboration with public and private universities, that aims to contribute to the competitiveness and internationalisation of companies in the Catalan territory, retain talent and place doctoral students in companies where they can develop R&D&I projects.

The essential element of the Industrial Doctorates Plan is the industrial doctorate project, that is, a strategic research project carried out at a company that allows the doctoral students to further develop his research training in collaboration with a university, and which is the object of a doctoral thesis. This thesis may apply for the industrial doctorate distinction in the PhD certificate.
