Externally employed doctoral students within food-related research (LivsID)
By assignment of the government, SLU has launched a programme for externally employed doctoral students (LivsID). As of 2018, the programme includes ten externally employed doctoral students working within food-related research. This effort is part of the national food strategy.
The Swedish food industry is facing a variety of challenges. Now, SLU will intensify and develop collaboration with this industry.
The new externally employed doctoral students within the programme LivsID focus on projects and issues iniated by companies, organisations, public authorities and other stakeholders working within the food industry.
The doctoral students are employed at their companies/organisations/authorities and spend 20 per cent of their time on regular tasks. Their doctoral studies will be carried out during five years, at 80 per cent of their working hours. The programme started in autumn 2018.
