What are European Industrial Doctorates (EID) ?

A European Industrial Doctorate (EID) is a consortium that sets up a joint research and training programme for researchers at doctoral level with particular emphasis on training in the non-academic sector. Each participating researcher must be enrolled in a doctoral programme and spend at least 50% of their time in the non-academic sector. The joint supervision of the researchers by supervisors in the academic and nonacademic sector is mandatory.
