- A good tool to develop employees and connections with universities

Executive Director Anne Kjersti Fahlvik. (Photo: Sverre Jarild) The scheme has been in operation since 2008 and is experiencing a record number of applications in 2016.

- The Industrial Ph.D. scheme has been very successful – so much so, we have had to increase the budget, due to the interest rising. What has changed during the last year or so is that it is seen as a good tool for companies to develop their own employees and develop connections with universities, Fahlvik says to the British publication.

A stronger connection between business and academia is indeed one of the Industrial Ph.D. Scheme's main goals, as this connection among other things can result in a more effective knowledge transfer between the two parties. Fahlvik also emphasises the significance a doctoral project in a company can have for talented, young researchers.
- Traditionally, you apply for a project, we evaluate the science quality, the impact value, the innovation potential and not so much look at the young participants in the project. But, in these new schemes we are funding, that is what we are doing, putting the young researchers at the front.
