EEO - External Engagement Office
We work to educate and advise PhD students, postdocs and researchers for a future career inside and outside academia. We organize a doctoral course and a financed internship program for PhD students and postdocs. We offer an extensive program of seminars, workshops, lectures and online support.
We provide mentorship programmes, inspirational activities and support to help researchers achieve impact and use of their knowledge and how their research can address United Nations Agenda 2030.
We work to create new opportunities for KI researchers (including PhD students and postdocs) for partnerships with industry and other external organisations. We provide support in setting up and managing long-term structured partnerships.
We provide advice and support in the early stages of the contracting process for such partnerships.
