The HiPEAC Industrial PhD Mobility Programme has resulted in technological innovations and many of our members use internships as a cost-effective recruiting tool.
The Collaboration grants are available to all HiPEAC PhD students and junior post-doctoral researchers. Each grant will provide EUR 5 000 for a 3-month collaborative visit. The origin or destination institution has to be an HiPEAC member.
Every year, HiPEAC will be funding several collaboration grants for HiPEAC PhD students and junior post-doctoral researchers wanting to visit another HiPEAC institution (either an academic institution or a company). The students and their host prepare a small research project for the stay (hence the topic is defined by the students and their hosts). The steering committee decides on the final allocation of the collaboration grants – based on the quality of the proposals.
Although targeted at PhD students, junior post-doctoral researchers are also eligible for this program. The funding for a 3-month collaboration grant consists of a lump sum of up to EUR 5 000 which should cover all additional costs (travelling, housing, etc.) – it cannot be used as a salary. The objective of the collaboration grants is to stimulate real collaboration between HiPEAC members. The initial goal is to fund 14 collaboration grants per year.
HiPEAC Industrial PhD Mobility Programme
The primary objective of the HiPEAC Industrial PhD Mobility Programme is to enable European companies to have access to highly skilled and exceptionally motivated research talent. Doctoral students in European universities are trained to conduct applied research, and have proven themselves to be an invaluable resource for R&D projects in our member companies, particularly in SMEs.
The HiPEAC Industrial PhD Mobility Programme has been running since the early days of HiPEAC, and has resulted in technological innovations and many of our members use internships as a cost-effective recruiting tool.
All HiPEAC companies are eligible to submit internship proposals.
• For SME’s and startups (250 employees or fewer), HiPEAC can fund one internship per company per year. HiPEAC grants consists of a daily allowance of 70 EUR for max. 90 days and a max. travel cost reimbursement of 500 EUR.
• For large companies (more than 250 employees), the internship has to be fully funded by the company, as HiPEAC does not have budget available to pay interns at large companies.
There are two payment options for SMEs:
• Option 1: HiPEAC directly pays the student.
• Option 2: The company directly pays the student but at the end of the internship, it reclaims costs from HiPEAC.
