Technology transfer fellowships

We are looking for candidates interested to apply to the TECNIOSpring INDUSTRY to support the technology transfer activity of the MTG projects with special focus on Cultural and Creative Industries


Imatge inicial

TECNIOspring is an international mobility fellowship programme that provides financial support to individual mobility proposals presented by experienced researchers in liaison with a TECNIO centre (like the MTG). The duration of the fellowships is 2 years.

Experienced researchers applying to this action need to develop a research project with focus on technology transfer for the total duration of the fellowship that will enable them to progress in the development of their careers. The fellowship is expected to be part of a structured, long-term personal career development plan that is coherent with past achievements and clearly defines the future aims of the researcher.

Tecniospring INDUSTRY fellowship programme is co-financed by the European Union through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action “Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (COFUND)”. Therefore, successful candidates will be Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellows as well as Tecniospring INDUSTRY fellows.
