The Ramboll PhD
November 2019: The Foundation is happy to announce that six PhDs have recently been approved for funding with a total of 3.53 mDKK, in collaboration with the Ramboll Group. The PhDs cover a wide range of topics within water, energy, architecture, bridges etc. and are hosted in Ramboll business units in Norway, Denmark, Finland and the UK. The new PhDs are listed below.
From 2019 and on, The Ramboll Foundation makes available an annual 500,000 EUR to PhD projects funded in cooperation with the Ramboll Group. The approximately five PhD projects per year are funded in a 50/50 split between the Ramboll Foundation and the Ramboll Group with the hosting business unit.
The Ramboll PhD programme gives specialists the opportunity to delve into exciting professional topics to unearth state-of-the-art knowledge and develop competences and innovative solutions to the benefit of themselves, Ramboll and their clients, and society at large.
To be eligible, you will need to have an agreement of employment in a hosting business unit in Ramboll. Applications for co-funding from the Ramboll PhD programme are submitted biannually. Prior to that, the candidate needs to have secured a green light from both hosting business unit as well as from a PhD School.
For further information, please contact Ramboll’s Head of Knowledge and Innovation Poul Hededal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
