Why choose IM-sKTP?
- The company benefits from a focussed R&D outcome, using capability and know-how that it did not previously have access to. It also builds a relationship with the intern’s home research group and may choose to offer the intern future employment, or otherwise maintain a formal engagement beyond the end of the project.
- The associate develops as an industrial mathematician through exposure to the business environment within the company. The intern returns to their university with knowledge of the key personnel and decision makers within the company and of the company’s innovation priorities.
- The associate’s university is able to build a longer-term strategic relationship with the participating company, and there is an element in the project budget to support the intern’s research supervisor in building the necessary connections.
