The aim of the InnovaXN programme is to develop and enhance research capabilities between industry and academia, with students working on innovative projects at the ESRF and ILL, the European large-scale research infrastructures in Grenoble. The ESRF and ILL partnered with the University of Grenoble Alpes to offer a 3-year training course for 40 PhD students. The training will take place at the ESRF or ILL in Grenoble. Each project is linked with industry and promises experience of working in industry through secondment to the partner companies located across Europe, and even further afield. The programme is supported by the H2020 MSCA COFUND Programme.

The deadline for applications is the 31st of March 2021.
