The world is going digital. How to succeed your business in this fast changing digital world? In this meetup we include industry and academic perspectives to bring solutions the industry needs to succeed in a strong digital Europe. Be with us on 4 December in Milan.

The future might be digital, the knowledge of making business out of technology requires more than just technical skills. Future leaders need to be able to translate technology into business opportunities and to make technology work for the business. And there is no time to waste. Innovation is crucial now.

The fundamental idea is to bring research to the industry and connect the industry with the academic world. Practice shows that this is rather exceptional.

The engagement of EIT Digital in Europe has shown the benefits of Industrial Doctorates for the industry in talent harvesting, pursuing innovation goals and succeeding. 

Two pioneering companies, IBM and Reply explain how hiring EIT Digital Doctoral School students will enhance their competitive edge. The concerned PHD students talk about bringing together the best of two worlds: the academic one and the industry one.

With additional keynotes from industry and Politecnico di Milano, and a panel discussion on top of that about the perspectives needed to foster innovation, the industrial doctorate meetup is a must-go-to-event to bring you up to speed.

EIT Digital Industrial Doctorates

Since 2016, the PhD programmes of the EIT Digital Doctoral School have primarily focused on Industrial Doctorates. Within an Industrial Doctorate, PhD students work on research assignments from industry. They benefit from continuous tutoring from this industry as well as academic supervision.  

The EIT Digital Doctoral School provides its programmes in collaboration with partner universities. In addition to academic research, EIT Digital Doctoral School students distinguish themselves from other PhD students by developing strong skills and competences in innovation, entrepreneurship and digital transformation leadership. This part of the programme is delivered by the EIT Digital Academy, in partnership with European Universities. By learning how to apply technology and research in a business context, the PhD’s can really contribute to tackling economic and societal challenges and help companies with their digital transformation.
