Industrial PhD Programme
The reform regarding PhD programmes of 2013 introduced a new cooperation procedure between university and business: the industrial PhD programme.

The industrial PhD programme allows companies to train their employees, already engaged in highly-qualifying activities, in the framework of a PhD programme.

In order to establish this type of PhD programme, it is necessary to conclude an agreement between the University and the company, establishing the programme and the modalities to perform research activities within the company, the share of overall commitment of the employee and the duration of the said PhD programme.
