The BYT, BYTplus and BYTPhD programs aim to provide the best undergraduate and postgraduate students with training in a stimulating and excellent scientific environment, in partnership with industry and SMEs.
Selected BYT, BYT+ and BYTPhD candidates will be awarded a scholarship and the opportunity to carry out their internship project or their master’s or doctoral dissertation within CIIMAR’s research teams, as well as the participation in a group of enrichment activities that enhance scientific excellence as well as in marine entrepreneurship and their insertion in the labor market.

The success of the BYT-CIIMAR undergraduate and BYTplus postgraduate programs, which are currently in the 6th and 1st editions, respectively, gave rise to the BYTPhD program whose 1st edition will be launched in 2020.
