The grant evaluation team rated the project highly for its ‘very strong, ambitious and timely research program’ and praised its ‘substantial inter/multidisciplinary and intersectoral aspects’.
EINST4INE is one of the 114 projects selected for funding under the European Training Network scheme, and the only one under the Economic Sciences panel.
In 2020, 1,285 project proposals were received under the highly competitive ITN call.
“EINST4INE’s mission is to develop a cohort of leaders in research and business, and equip them with a unique set of hybrid tech-digital behavioural skills and cutting-edge knowledge,” Mention says.
“More specifically, the project focuses on developing a knowledge base in four complementary areas: the human side of digital transformation; coordination and decision-making; enabling technologies and new value creation logics; and the orchestration of innovation ecosystems.
“To achieve this goal, EINST4INE will offer an exceptional program providing a large range of multidisciplinary research and practical training combined with workshops, summer schools as well as unique international, interdisciplinary mobility and secondment opportunities across Europe, USA and Australia.”
RMIT Europe will be fundamental in lending its expertise to developing the training workshops, masterclasses and summer schools key to EINST4INE’s provision of a multidisciplinary research and practical training program.
To kick off the project, 15 PhD candidates will be recruited from a worldwide hiring campaign expected to begin in early 2021.
The students, four of whom will be based at RMIT Europe, will work on a set of projects assessing the processes applied by organisations to achieve digital transformation in the context of Industry 4.0.
