PhD Degree in Technology Innovation in Europe

Search PhD Programs in Technology Innovation in Europe 2018

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Technology innovation is the practice of responding to societal needs by harnessing existing technologies or inventing new ones. Some training programs focus on perfecting the technologies themselves, while others teach students to use business principles to bring their ideas to market.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
