  • communication and technical skills to disseminate industrially-relevant research results to specialist and non-specialist audiences
  • mastery of theoretical knowledge of the research topic and the ability to apply such knowledge to solving problems in the chemical industry

Generic skills

  • Time and project management skills.
  • The ability to interact in a cross-cultural environment
  • The ability to exercise critical judgement and operate in both an academic and industry environment, and/or with a high level of personal autonomy and accountability.
