FINDER, a competitive Marie Curie Research and Training Program funded by the European Committee stands for: Fostering Innovation Networks in a Digital Era.

The FINDER program sets out to Foster Innovation Networks in a Digital Era (FINDER). Appointed Marie Curie FINDER PhD Fellows will investigate the innovative collaborative arrangement amongst organizations – grassroots, incumbents and the wider society –  as they inclusively explore digital technology for new product or market development.

Unique features of this European Industrial Doctorate are:

  • an in-depth investigation of innovation dynamics at emergent ecosystems and complex organizations;
  • industry-led complementary training in the domains of Professional Innovation Management;
  • a bespoke program of FINDER network events that bring together doctoral researchers, academics, practicing managers and policymakers interested in innovation and
  • a total of 18 months placement at one of Atos’ major European business hubs.

This project (FINDER) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 813095
