Industrial Doctorate meetups

‘Need for speed in innovation’ is the theme of the first industrial meetup of the EIT Digital Doctoral School is hosting in 2019. The theme reflects on the need of the industry to implement new research on emerging technologies as good and as fast as possible. Industrial doctorates are one way of implementing new research in a direct manner. The first meetup will be held in Budapest on 6 June 2019.

The meetup will bring together doctoral students, industry professionals and academics to discuss the needs of the industry for innovation and how to respond to this need. Industrial doctorate students talk about how their research contributes to the challenges relating to digital transformation, and industrial and academic speakers discuss both in their keynotes as in a panel discussion with the students and audience about collaboration between business and universities to develop business out of research.

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.
