Science for Society is a 3-year EU Interreg project that seeks to increase the amount of PhDs and Postdocs who either envision becoming entrepreneurs or look to the employment prospects outside the university in general.
By equipping PhD students and Postdocs with applicable tools for making their competences attractive to future employers, the main aim is thus to facilitate a more effective transition to the job market.
TO STREAMLINE THIS PROCESS, SCIENCE FOR SOCIETY OFFERS:
- Individual career guidance by PhD career consultance in Aalborg
- Mentorship programme – PhD students and Postdocs are matched with a mentor experienced in a given profession. The mentors are typically AAU Alumni.
- Courses in vocational competency clarification, presentational technique, and entrepreneurship
- An annual conference for PhD students and Postdocs from Aalborg, Aarhus, Lund, and Oslo
- Entrepreneurship activities to inspire more PhD and Postdocs to become entrepreneurs
- Company visits
THE PROJECT IS A CROSS-REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION BETWEEN:
- Oslotech A/S
- University of Oslo, Centre for Entrepreneurship
- Lund University, LU Innovation System
- Central Denmark Region, Regional development
- Aarhus University, Research and Business Collaboration
- Aalborg University
The associated partners assemble regularly to learn from each other by exchanging ideas and experiences. Thus, the best practice for the concerned PhD and Postdoc target groups is developed and maintained.
