Industrial Ph.D. (NAERINGSPHD)

The overall objectives are to increase the recruitment of researchers to Norwegian industry, to boost long-term competence-building and increase research efforts in business and industry and to enhance interaction between academia and industry.


The Research Council works to boost research activity in Norwegian companies and provides support for research projects. The authorities expect the Research Council to help to increase knowledge intensity in Norwegian industry through the recruitment of doctoral candidates, among other things. There is a clear need for greater interaction between academia, society and industry. New recruitment measures are called for to increase research activity in industry and society at large, and achieve efficient knowledge transfer from researchers to society.
The Industrial Ph.D. scheme gives rise to a small but critical increase in the total number of doctoral candidates and will give companies the opportunity to enhance their research expertise without having to participate in a more comprehensive project (Innovation Project for the Industrial Sector or Knowledge-building Project for Industry).
The Industrial Ph.D. scheme is designed to support long-term, industry-oriented research that has the same level of scientific merit as the general doctoral degree education.
