Completed workshop “Introduction to MEMS”

Transferable skills workshop on industry exposure at BOSCH

Completed workshop “Low temperature measurement techniques”

Technical skills workshop focused on modern solutions in refrigeration, thermometry, low noise measurements, and quantum engineering. Academic training will be complemented by visits to industrial and government laboratories (BlueFors Ltd and MIKES).

Completed workshop “Entrepreneurship”

Transferable skills workshop presented by EPFL's TTO office focuses on how companies are started, managing IPR, how business plans are written, and venture capital funding.

Completed workshop “Taking an Idea to a Product at IBM” & “Case Study: Intellectual property and how to write a patent application”

Transferable skills workshop presented by IBM with focus on commercial exploitation of technical innovations and the treatment of intellectual property in an industrial research environment.

Completed training secondments

All beneficiaries will host ESRs under training secondments.

Completed workshop “Career Prospects in Industry & Academia”

Transferable skills workshop exploring career prospects open to ESRs after their PhD education, in the fields of industry (start-up, SME, large companies), academia and patent law.

Determine research secondments

Research secondments are “needs” driven and to be defined by the beginning of the 3rd year at the latest, and concern a stay of 1 – 3 months at one of the partners working on a similar topic. The aim is to complement the PhD thesis with expertise from one of the ETN partners and culminating ideally in a joint publication.
