Applied and industrial training
The IIE-PhD programme is closely connected to the private and industrial research sectors. This can be clearly seen through the collaboration with Friuli Innovazione and through the established relationships with a large number of enterprises, industries and private research centres, which have led to collaboration agreements with the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica Gestionale e Meccanica.
In particular, the collaboration with Friuli Innovazione is focused on:
- promotion and dissemination in private research centres, industries and small and medium size enterprises of the research activities carried out by PhD fellows;
- technology transfer of applied research activities carried out by PhD fellows in private research centres, industries and small and medium size enterprises;
- fund raising for PhD and post-doc projects.
The Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica Gestionale e Meccanica, boasts more than 20 collaborations with local and international enterprises, industries, private research centres, which support scientific and technological activities of the Department and in particular PhD activities.
In general, the collaborating industries and enterprises finance or co-finance PhD activities through PhD grants or research fellowships, also sponsoring laboratory material and instrumentation or providing financial support to PhD fellows for research periods abroad in highly qualified research centres or for participation at international conferences.
