ZHAW has recently been mandated by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) as the Leading House (LH) for the bilateral research collaboration of Switzerland and India.
Within the University, SML’s Department of International Business has been asked to manage LH India activities. One of the first LH India activities is the Academia Industry Training program (AIT), which aims to support scientists in transforming their high-level applied research into market application and discovering their entrepreneurial potential. By connecting scientists from top institutions in Switzerland and India, the program promotes an international network and enables access to one of the most promising markets and intellectual capitals in applied research. It is open to high-level and carefully selected researchers: Master, PhD, Postdocs and researchers of Swiss Universities, Universities of Applied Science and research institutes or centres of technological excellence with research track record working on a non-profit basis, seeking to explore the successful market application of their high-level applied research.
The application deadline is 25 June 2017. More information and link to application.
