Education and recruitment
To further strengthen both academic and industrial activities in metals production and refining, education and recruitment of students - both MSc and PhD is crucial.
The Centre will finance a total of 14 PhD students and 5 Post Doc positions at NTNU.
Master students will be an integral part of the research teams working on specific and cross-industrial cases.
All PhD students in the Centre will be encouraged to spend a minimum of 6 months of their PhD research with an international partner university.
As part of the research training, an annual PhD forum/conference dedicated to topics such as research methodology and innovation will be arranged. Through this event, students will have the chance to discuss, and exchange information as well as establish personal networks with other students, senior representatives of industry and academia, nationally and internationally.
