As a researcher and doctoral student, you are important to us. New knowledge and new research findings enable us to constantly develop. We have long-term collaboration with several seats of learning in Sweden and abroad. Research that is relevant to our operations provides a connection with reality and involvement for the students.

Industrial doctoral student

As an industrial doctoral student, you are employed by us, but are registered as a doctoral student at a seat of learning. You conduct research in the academic environment for a certain percentage of your worktime and spend the remainder of your time working within SCA's operations. The scope of the research studies can vary over time. The initiative to become an industrial doctoral student can come from yourself, from your seat of learning or from us. Together, we establish objectives and guidelines for our knowledge-sharing and competence development.
