SUPA Industrial Placement Scheme
The third call for applications to the SUPA Industrial Placement Scheme is now open, details attached. The scheme is for companies to recruit secondees from SUPA for up to six months, with all costs met by the scheme; it is ideally meant for early career researchers in SUPA but any members of staff would be considered, as would SUPA PhD students who would have completed their write-up before the start of the placement. We are trying to generate about half of the placements from collaborations with companies overseas.
Applications should be made by the company, so if you are working with, or know of a company that would benefit from working with you or your research group, please pass this information on to them. Contact email@example.com for further information.
Please see pdf / doc for more details.
SUPA KT’s mission is to increase commercial engagement between SUPA and industry. This will generate revenue for SUPA and will allow commercial exploitation of research to the benefit of the economy of Scotland and beyond.
We have a number of case studies where SUPA research has benefitted our industrial partners.
SUPA has four mechanisms to help companies work with SUPA researchers:
SUPA KT has also examined the current needs and future opportunity for commercial engagement in three Market Sector reviews in Defence and Security, the Life Sciences and Medical Imaging.
