Open Science Innovation in PhD programme through Earth Observation: towards new career skills development

Project description

Supporting researchers’ development through earth observation

Forging synergies and connecting academia with the market are constant challenges in a rapidly changing scientific landscape. The EU-funded InnEO Space_PhD project is focusing on the preparation of postgraduate candidates and early-stage researchers for a successful career through modernised and transferable PhD courses based on innovation skills and employers’ needs. The project aims at enhancing and developing researchers’ innovation-oriented mindsets and transferable skills through earth observation, an applicable multidisciplinary approach in various fields. Moreover, emphasis will be placed on developing an e-learning course and a PhD career tool kit that will remain accessible after the project's completion.

Objective

InnEO’Space_PhD project aims at preparing post-graduate candidates and early stage researchers for a successful career through modernised and transferable PhD courses based on innovation skills and employers’ needs. To achieve this, the project will enhance and develop researchers’ innovation-oriented mind-sets and skills through Earth Observation, that offers a multidisciplinary approach and numerous applications in various sectors (environment, climate change, crisis management…).
By converging to a joint PhD profile, synergies between universities will be enhanced to promote exchanges and mobility. The project will also create new synergies between: - PhD students and researchers and potential employers, and, - the universities and the private sector. Indeed, the consortium will collaborate with companies, SMEs and clusters to develop the activities, enhance PhD students and early sThe aim of the Open Science innovation in PhD programme through Earth Observation is to prepare young researchers for a successful career by developing modernised PhD courses based on innovation skills and employers’ needs. By implementing four pilots at a large scale and across Europe in the multidisciplinary case of Earth-Observation science applications, the consortium will get a broad mapping of best practices to develop a e-learning course and a PhD career tool kit that will remain accessible after the end of the project. The e-learning course will then be a useful tool for any university, which wants to foster new careers for PhD students and researchers from any domain by providing them with transferable skills to fit the European industry and stakeholder needs other than academic labs. The InnEO’Space_PhD shall stand for a special academic excellence for future scientific leaders in any field related to EO, enlarging their training and experience with soft skills, environment monitoring, open science and entrepreneurship, that are needed elements for innovation at any level.
