This year, there are 16 positions including 11 scholarships and 5 positions reserved for employees of the partner companies. All the positions are matched with specific research projects to face the industrial challenges that vary from production process improvement to new product creation.
The financing companies come from different industrial sectors that range from food to automotive, and from software design to wastewater treatment. All the companies operate at international level and offer the market solutions of the highest technological and innovative value.
Companies are the key players of the Program since they participate in the supervision of the research projects and host the students for 6 to 36-months internships.
