Students who undertake the co-funded PhD Enterprise Scholarship undertake a 3-3.5-year research project that addresses real-world challenges identified by your organisation.
The PhD Enterprise Scholarship also incorporates a 3-month internship that integrates the PhD student into your team, enabling exponential development and shared expertise for the student and your employees.
A cost-effective investment, the PhD Enterprise Scholarship will cost $57,000 (approximately $16,500 per year), with Flinders committing an equal amount. Your organisation will also be investing resources to co-supervise the PhD, enable the internship and potentially provide access to data, information and equipment.
PhD students usually own the IP in their research projects – but this is negotiable when a government, business or community organisation is involved. Confidentiality clauses can also be incorporated to protect commercially sensitive information.
