EPSRC supports industry-focussed PhD studentshipsPosted on Friday, February 5th, 2010 in Funding calls, News| Share this article
Studentships (current estimated value per student of £66,838) will be awarded to companies with the EPSRC funding provided to the host university through Industrial CASE Accounts. Companies must contribute a minimum of one-third of this (ca. £22k) in addition over the three years and may contribute more depending on the requirements of the proposed research. More information is available from the EPSRC at the link below.
The University of Sheffield and the Polymer Centre have a strong track record in developing commercially-relevant PhD studentships to meet strategic needs of companies through world-leading research using the Industrial CASE scheme. Companies who wish to discuss a potential idea are invited to contact Dr Joe Gaunt, Polymer Centre Business Development Consultant.
