AID FOR RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND INNOVATION

Industrial Doctorates

Object: Aid for the development of Industrial Doctorate (DI) projects in any field of knowledge and in any business sector. The research project will be developed within the strategic framework of a company and, at the same time, within a research group of a university, a research center, hospital foundation or technology center where the doctoral student must complete research training, which must lead to a doctoral thesis.

Amount and conditions: 

Two forms of DI are considered:

• DI Cofinançats (DI-COF): where the business environment has a work center in Catalonia and the PhD student will dedicate himself to the research project full time. In this mode, both the academic and the business environment are beneficiaries of the aid.

• Specific DIs (DI-ESP): If the entity representing the academic environment hires, there must be a transfer of resources from the business entity to cover the recruitment costs. This modality will be chosen when:

o The company cannot assume the direct recruitment of the PhD student/and in accordance with the academic environment compensate the labor costs of the recruitment.

o The doctoral student's dedication to the development of the project and the doctoral thesis cannot be exclusive and, consequently, the expected duration of the DI project is greater than three years.

o The work center of the business environment is located outside Catalonia.

o Other unforeseen cases of special interest arise that, duly justified, can be considered by the selection committee.

Minimum gross remuneration of €22.000 on average per year and the corresponding employers' fees.
