The IRS School is an initiative for Northern Central Sweden and a collaboration between The University of Gävle, Dalarna University and Karlstad University.
We now invite companies to a workshop to inform about the graduate school, talk to the researchers and discuss what collaboration with the graduate school might look like.
The workshop will be held in English.

Summary and next steps
The purpose of our industrial graduate school is to offer training that meets the industry's need for excellence and that strengthens the competitiveness of the participating companies. The graduate school offers the opportunity to develop employees and prepares them for specialist assignments within the company. The graduate school is aimed at industrial development professionals who spend 80% of their working time on company-linked research and development over a five-year period and leads to a PhD. Participants should have at least three years of work experience, be employed by the company and meet qualifications for postgraduate education.
Specialization within the industrial graduate school
The industrial graduate school supports a wide range of research opportunities, ranging from decision-making and decision support for complex problems, over intelligent management of resources and infrastructure, to business intelligence and data scientific questions. Dalarna University focuses on business related questions, artificial intelligence, and data science. In brief, we specialize on everything around the “data analytics” pipeline. It starts with a dialog about the problem, data collection, data curation, and data storage. Followed by advanced data analytics, prediction, modeling, and verification. This process ends with data visualization, critical evaluation, and communication of results. A doctoral student at the end of the education will be able to integrate this data analytical pipeline into almost all industrial processes, critically evaluate and implement new technologies, and communicate problems and answers to all kinds of decision makers.
