The Industrial Doctorates are defined as planned research studies aimed at acquiring new knowledge and skills that can be useful to develop new products, processes or services, or that allow to considerably improve existing ones. Based on a triple premise: excellence, attractive work environment and quality control,industrial doctorates include other complementary aspects such as multidisciplinary research, collaborative opportunities, as well as exposure to the industry and other sectors that have influence on the different entrepreneurial skills that will obtain doctors, such as communication, teamwork, entrepreneurship, management economic, financial and time, etc.
The objectives that are intended with these grants are the following:
In previous calls more than 100 applications have been submitted each year. However, evaluations on the impact of the measure have not been carried out yet.
The cooperation between academia and business will enhance the knowledge transfer and better prepare the future Industrial Doctorates, whom will profit from the practical training and the theoretical knowledge in their professional career. Moreover, they will have first-hand knowledge of the demands of the market and how it works as well as the latest trends in research, allowing them to be better positioned to anticipate and meet the future needs of the productive tissue.
The existence of these mediators will also promote a closer collaboration between the organisations. In fact, both the academic and business environment, will benefit as much as the own doctorates from this measure. They will also be aware of the importance and the advantages that bring innovation and ultimately, will contribute to create high-quality employment that will prevent the brain drain happening in recent years.
