BiR&D Cross-Disciplinary PhD Award

Industriële valorisatie en maatschappelijke relevantie zijn voor de Belgian Industrial Research and Development Board (BiR&D) zeer belangrijk. Daarom organiseert het FWO en het Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique – FNRS, op initiatief van BiR&D, jaarlijks de BiR&D Cross-Disciplinary PhD Thesis Award, ter bekroning van een doctoraatsthesis die een originele en cross-disciplinaire bijdrage levert met de mogelijkheid tot industriële valorisatie en maatschappelijke relevantie. In 2019 zullen twee prijzen worden toegekend, één in het gebied “Life & Health Sciences” en één in het gebied “Science & Technology”.
