What is SELECT+ (PhD Programme)
The SELECT+ (Environomical pathways for sustainable energy services) is a four-year Doctoral programme, with its main goal to identify, test, implement and commercialize highly efficient energy technologies.
This programme combines the in-depth fundamental research that is required by academia with the development of innovations that have market potential. With a consortium of 8 core Universities, 6 associated Universities, 4 core Industries and 6 associated Industries, the SELECT+ programme will offer the way to reconcile these two perspectives through multi-disciplinary approaches in which the students work in collaboration with industries. Energy problems are typically multi-disciplinarial not only in the sense that different science and engineering disciplines are necessary but also that the social and management sciences (e.g. regarding business strategies) will have to play a critical role.This Doctoral programme puts equal emphasis to the social, economic, managerial as well as cultural aspects to the development of our PhD candidates.
The objectives of the SELECT+ Erasmus Mundus programme are:
- Acquisition and formalization of knowledge by combining the individual strengths of the participating universities and industrial (technical and business, both core and associated) members towards interdisciplinary research of innovative character.
- Creation of network of excellent PhDs with leading research groups, based on the specially designed and integrated mobility schemes.
- Establishment of actual industry/academy joint research activities on projects in cooperation with leading industries.
- In the end, launch of at least one start-up for each of “SELECT+ Projects of the Intake”.
The SELECT+ programme contains mandatory mobility where students are assigned to the home university and also a significant amount of time with the second university and industries. The SELECT+ participants will, upon completion of the programme depending on the mobility scheme, be awarded a joint or a double degree. Please visit Programme Description for more information.
