Adaptation to a new economic reality (AdaptEconII) is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded in the frame of H2020 and the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions.
In the AdaptEcon ITN twelve Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) are training for a PhD at the University of Iceland (Reykjavik, Iceland), University of Stockholm (Stockholm, Sweden) and University Blaise Pascal (Clermont Ferrand, France). The students will obtain a joint PhD from two of the participating universities. Each Early Stage Researcher will also have a training period in a collaborating institution in the UK (New Economics Foundation; Schumacher Institute), Sweden (Swedish National Defence College) or Germany (Wuppertal Institute; Institute of Economic Structures Research (GWS).
The aim of Innovative Training Networks is to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative early-stage researchers, that are able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit. AdaptEcon is a transdisciplinary ITN that embeds young researchers of the future into new economic thinking.
