Project description

Business design is defined as the concept of generating new business and innovation through design. dŠola Ljutomer is promoting business design through a series of research in following areas:

  • Business model innovation (1 post) [Ref: BMI]
  • Corporate social responsibility (1 post) [Ref: CSR]
  • Creative class (1 post) [Ref: CC]
  • Design driven innovation (1 post) [Ref: DDI]
  • Design research (1 post) [Ref: DR]
  • Sustainable cities (1 post) [Ref: DR]

Research at dŠola Ljutomer is highly interdisciplinary and therefore applications are welcomed from backgrounds in various disciplines.

Requirements

Research at dŠola Ljutomer is highly interdisciplinary and therefore applications are welcomed from backgrounds in disciplines including but not limited to the economy, social sciences and humanities, design and architecture, cultural policy, and engineering & information science.

Experienced researchers must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience at the time of the submission of proposals, in our case, by the end of August 2013. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitle him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country where the researcher is recruited.

By the end of August 2013, the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Slovenia for more than 12 months in the last three years. Compulsory national service and/or short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account. A researcher who has benefited or is benefiting from an FP6 or FP7 Reintegration Grant or Career Integration Grant is not eligible for this funding. An individual researcher in liaison with dŠola Ljutomer can submit for a CIG and another Marie Curie grant at the same time but an individual researcher cannot benefit, at the same time, from more than one Marie Curie Action (either individual or host action including COFUND). Thus, for the researcher two Marie Curie funded projects cannot overlap.

How to apply

Postgraduate refers to a degree which entitles the holder to embark on doctoral studies without having to acquire any further qualifications. Only time spent on postgraduate research activities (whether remunerated or not, and including the period of research training e.g. PhD period) should be included. If an applicant has been engaged in other professional activities than research in certain periods since his/her graduation, this time will not count as ‘full-time postgraduate research experience’. Any periods of part-time activity in research should be translated into full-time experience (e.g. 3 years half time =1,5 years full-time). Please note that the proposer may be asked to produce evidence of this experience at any stage. Wrong or missing information may cause your proposal to be ineligible.

Having several proposals in the application procedure for one or more actions at the same time may render your proposal ineligible. New or similar proposals are eligible to be submitted only after the evaluation procedure of the relevant round has been terminated. Please note that an individual researcher cannot benefit, at the same time, from more than one Marie Curie Action (either individual or other, including COFUND). For this particular purpose the application procedure is deemed to have terminated for a proposal with the notification of its rejection, of it being placed on a reserve list, or of it being recommended for funding. If you have previously benefited of EU funding under Marie Curie actions in the same field, you should demonstrate the substantial added value of the new project. Indicate here the action name, year and the proposal or contract number.
