Match Making event in Agder– Spring 2024

Match Making

Ph.D.-students from the three collaborating institutions, USN, NTNU and UiA meeting the industry in Agder.

05 Mar

Practical information

Any questions?

Ph.D. students, professors, and industry partners will come together at Strand Hotel Fevik (Agder) on March 5th from 1:00-4:00 pm to share their insights and tighten the gap between academia and industry.

INRESCOS student members will present their research projects and attend pre-scheduled matchmaking meetings with industry partners of interest.

The main scope is to find relevant companies for internships/work aligned with INRESCOS' concept, utilizing the industry as a laboratory to enhance the Ph.D. candidates’ learning and conducting research within the industry.


If you represent a company and want to participate and/or have a meeting with one of our PhD candidates during the Match Making session on March 5:
