Context of the project The ATTRACT Phase-1B project aims to consolidate a European innovation ecosystem focused on breakthrough detection & imaging technologies. Research infrastructures, as providers of advanced services and as procurers of cutting-edge technologies, have a potential for innovation that has not always been sufficiently exploited. Opportunities arising from the development of components, instruments, services and knowledge for the implementation and upgrade of research infrastructures could be better exploited to push the limits of existing technologies. There is clear potential for innovation associated with procurement from industry during the construction and upgrade of research infrastructures. The aim is to encourage research infrastructures to act as early adopters or developers of cutting-edge technology, to promote R&D partnerships with industry, to facilitate industrial use of research infrastructures and to stimulate the creation of innovation clusters. This activity shall also support training and/or exchanges of staff managing and operating research infrastructures. A co-innovation approach to continuously generate, scale and deploy breakthrough technologies with market and social value needs to be adopted by research infrastructures.
Your tasks You will take an active role in the following:
Take a leading role as the ILL point of contact, strengthening the collaboration with other project partners and industries
Contribute to developing a co-innovation platform to transparently promote the use of research infrastructure technologies for industrial applications across Europe
Increase the capacity to generate, absorb and use new technologies
Enhance the innovation capability of the research infrastructures
Raise awareness in industry of opportunities offered by research infrastructures to improve their products, e.g. as experimental test facilities, innovation hubs, knowledge-based centres
Support the integration of research infrastructures into local, regional and global innovation systems.
PhD in physics, engineering or equivalent qualification
Previous experience in R&D in a research facility is strongly encouraged.
You have a good level of spoken English in your area of expertise.
Experience of working at an international research organisation would be appreciated.
Previous experience with European projects is a plus.
