Types of projects

Flagship Research Projects

5-year projects with an interdisciplinary team of PhD students, postdoc researchers and industrial staff members. This will be the main type of research projects within ARC CBBC, since creating impact within a new field of research requires a concerted, in-depth effort for several years, uncovering new innovative options and seeking breakthroughs within that field.

Industrial Internships

Master’s students from academic partners spend 3-6 months at a partner company in the industry to address a specific research project. The project is part of the student’s curriculum.

Academic Internships / Secondments and Industrial Doctorates

Staff members from the industry spend a period at an academic partner. This could include e.g. short, full-time internships to learn a specific technique or longer-term secondments where the staff member works part-time at the academic partner in the context of a joint project. This may also lead to a doctoral degree (Industrial Doctorate). 

1-3 year Research Projects

Typically, a postdoctoral researcher at an academic institute will work on a research project, most often in close collaboration with staff members from companies in the industry. 

4-year PhD projects

PhD students at an academic institute work on a research project, always in close collaboration with staff members from companies in the industry.
