Second 2018 call for Baekeland and Innovation mandates

Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO) launched its second 2018 call for Baekeland and Innovation mandates, with deadline on Monday September 3, 2018, at noon.

Baekeland mandates offer the possibility to obtain a PhD in close collaboration with a Flemish company. Likewise, the main purpose of the Innovation mandates is to carry out postdoctoral research in close connection with the business world, aiming at an effective transfer and utilization of research results either in an existing company or in a new spin-off.

More information can be found on the VLAIO website:
