The European PhD Hub vision
The PhD Hub is the single online resource for business-driven research. It connects PhD students, universities and businesses at local and European level. The PhD Hub is an EU-funded project under Erasmus+ Key Action 2 - Knowledge Alliance.
A quality framework for University-Business cooperation
Local hubs are structuring strategic cooperation between academia, industry and their research activities. Their members (industry, PhD students, researchers) can access international cooperation opportunities offered by the online portal.
An online infrastructure to increase the impact potential of research activities
Members of local PhD Hubs share information both at local and European level. It increases cooperation opportunities and enhances transferability of research results to the wider society (also referred to as industry).
