Training the next generation scientific entrepreneurs
Europe will prepare for the post-COVID era with fast, green and resilient development, ensuring growth that protects the continent's natural resources. This requires strong collaboration between academia, businesses and public agencies to provide necessary professional skills and knowledge. The EU-funded EMPOWER project will recruit and train 14 early-stage researchers in an integrated groundbreaking business-oriented doctoral programme that will guide them to achieve multidisciplinary expertise and entrepreneurship as well as personal development. The research programme will be based on the collaboration of the Wetsus multidisciplinary research institute with 3 universities, 14 companies and public authorities to guarantee a strong impact for European sustainable development based on green energy, resources and water management.
