INFO SESSION CIVIC PHDS - BAEKELAND MANDATES (BM) - INNOVATION MANDATES (IM) 4 apr 2019
INFO SESSION CIVIC PHDS - BAEKELAND MANDATES (BM) - INNOVATION MANDATES (IM)
On Tuesday 23 April 2019 the new BOF-programme “Civic PhDs” (first pilot call) will be launched. The Civic PhD programme cofunds projects with a PhD finality, in collaboration with non-academic partners. Within the 'Civic PhDs' programme, it will be possible to collaborate with external partners with an economic or societal finality, such as Flemish, Belgian and international companies, NGOs, courts of law, etc.
In the second part of the session, VLAIO advisor Els Tourwé will give attendees a more complete overview of funding possibilities for (post)doctoral students in close collaboration with industry in Flanders by introducing the Baekeland and Innovation mandates. Baekeland mandates focus on doctoral research that, in case of success, has clear economic added value for the company involved in the project. Innovation mandates are project based funding for postdoctoral researchers aimed at the economic valorisation of their research and the continued development of basic research to make their results applicable to companies.
This l(a)unch session is highly recommended to anyone who wants to apply for one of these funding programmes or who wants to encourage his/her students to apply. Since the focus of the session is on collaboration with both social and economic actors, we kindly ask you to distribute this invitation to your network of possible non-academic partners. For researchers this event can also be a good opportunity to introduce their expertise and find a match among the non-academic attendees.
