IPSP2021

 

 

 

IPSP: a unique sharing opportunity and a great growing experience for young researchers and industrial companies.

Industrial Problem Solving with Physics (IPSP) is a one-week event organized by the Department of Physics, the Doctoral School in Physics and the Research and Technology Transfer Support Division of the University of Trento, in collaboration with Confindustria Trento and Polo Meccatronica - Trentino Sviluppo.
The aim of this event is to boost the connection between University and industry. Young and motivated researchers will have the chance to prove their skills, while selected companies will experience the unique opportunity to collaborate with young and talented brains.
The 2021 edition of IPSP (IPSP2021) will be held from 19 to 24 July 2021, at Polo Scientifico e Tecnologico "Fabio Ferrari", Via Sommarive 9 - Povo, Trento.

How does IPSP work?

3 companies and up to 30 brains (master course students and graduates, PhD students, post-doc and fellow researchers) will be selected and will in teams led by 3 experienced researchers (the Scientific Committee) for a week  to find solutions to the technological problems proposed by the companies. Solutions will be achieved through inspiration, resources and facilities available at the Department of Physics.
IPSP aims at creating a bridge for the transfer of technological knowledge and human resources between the University, in particular the Department of Physics, and companies. Students and researchers participating in the event will have the opportunity to tackle new practical challenges, crossing more than one area of their scientific background.
Participating companies can obtain a solution to their problems and experience an alternative approach about how to reach their goals. At the same time, they will have the chance to scout young and talented people for future collaborations.
