SnT is committed to fostering the production of innovative ideas, increasing the depth and breadth of the competence of, and facilitating research in collaboration with, established partners as well as new start-ups in the ICT industry.
Through the partnership program, partners contribute to and influence the development of SnT at all levels. The partners have representation on the SnT Board where the centre’s strategy is developed. The Industrial Advisory Board supports the strategy and operations of SnT. Research is conducted jointly in partnered projects where SnT and partners contribute know-how and resources to achieve common goals.
The partnership program also allows research activity to be leveraged with public research funding through the European Framework programmes, European Space Agency, and the National Research Funding Agency (FNR). Industrial PhD student projects are an attractive form of collaboration with SnT. Together with a partner, a PhD student project is defined (3+1 years duration) which is of interest to the partner and scientifically appropriate for a thesis. Together, a suitable student is recruited and the project is often carried out both at the partner premises and at SnT.
