Companies who are engaging in innovative products or processes can sponsor research into specific problems that require in-depth analysis, optimization and/or simulation, and scientific knowledge. Often this kind of project can be subsidized up to 50% by the IWT, especially if you are an SME. We help you submit the proposal. The research is performed by our department's scientific staff, or a dedicated researcher is hired if the project runs over at least 2 years, and up to 4 years. In this case, a highly qualified engineer can be engaged at relatively low cost through a doctoral scholarship with little or no RSZ costs.
