DIMECC Breakthrough Materials Doctoral School

September 9, 2016

The DIMECC Breakthrough Materials Doctoral School with 30 positions is the largest industrially funded doctoral education program in Finland. The doctoral school is implemented via the DIMECC BSA and HYBRIDS programs involving more than 60 companies and all Finnish key universities and research institutes with a total investment of 80 M€ for next five years.

The goals of these new PPP programs are ambitious. They combine spearhead science and real critical industrial needs to enable innovative and sustainable materials solutions. One key element in making this happen is a knowledge platform that will enable the development and efficient utilization of multiscale modelling. This platform crosscuts through the industry-oriented projects in each program and also links the two programs together.
