The project has the following three main objectives:

  • To address identified knowledge gaps through research collaboration and by clearly identifying the technology and knowledge chain for the development and leverage of European expertise.
  • To bridge the gap between industrial innovation and education in order to enable the market up-take of innovative solutions for SET-Plan measures.
  • To create a network of integrated research and industrial infrastructures and develop programmes for collaborative post-graduate research at these installations.

In order to feedback research excellence into training and market activities as recommended by the SET Plan, Phoenix will leverage the established trans-sectorial and interdisciplinary network established by the research secondments to: improve current training in HEIs by integrating experts from business in education by systemic cooperative education measures; provide a platform for continued innovation training linking business, research institutions and HEIs and to decrease the research-to-market time using secondments as well as creative new formats involving SMEs, HEIs and research institutions.

The Phoenix project will set up secondments for a total of 62 researchers from 11 countries covering 306 PMs, of which two-thirds are cross-sectorial and one-third are international.
