Generated with AI

In an age increasingly dominated by digital transitions and ecological concerns, the University of Turku has secured a groundbreaking €3.3 million Marie Skłodowska-Curie Cofund from the European Social Fund. The monumental project, coined "Solutions for Green and Digital Transition (UTU-GreDiT)," led by Geography Professor Petteri Alho, accumulates €7.4 million in total funding.

Launching in 2024, this initiative aims to recruit international scholars as doctoral researchers. The primary mission? To mold these talents into adept experts who can address intricate environmental challenges while propelling societal digitalization. Their research areas span climate change, circular economy, sustainable environment, clean energy, to robotics and machine learning AI.

Beyond rigorous academic training, the program prioritizes real-world applications. Encompassing 14 research groups from three faculties, this initiative guarantees a truly multidisciplinary learning environment. With renowned partners like the World Bank and University of Manchester, the doctoral candidates gain tangible industry insights.

Professor Alho emphasizes, "This multifaceted framework ensures that our new doctoral researchers thrive in a genuinely multidisciplinary research environment."
