JMAP is a an EID (European Industrial Doctorate), which is a specific Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union. This new kind of ITN is composed of two participants from two different EU countries: one academic participant and one from the private sector. The young researchers must enrol in an academic PhD program and spend at least 50% of their time within the private sector. Whithin the network, a number of Phd projects are jointly carried out, providing a unique training opportunity for early stage researchers.
The 4 PhD fellows of the JMAP Network will have the opportunity to split their time between high-level research in one of the premier ultrafast laser institutes in Europe (MBI) and one of the leading manufacturers of lasers for the scientific market (Amplitude Technologies).
The project will last from 1.09.2012 until 31.08.2016.
