Cooperative Awards in Science and Engineering (CASE) studentships

  • We are keen to work with industrial partners and have been awarded CASE studentships by the BBSRC in the past.
  • BBSRC encourages links in the provision of research training between academic institutions and industry so students can experience different research environments.
    CASE awards are doctoral studentships which provide research training in a partnership between an eligible academic institution and a co-operating company. Students are jointly supervised by an academic and a company supervisor. (More details about eligibility can be found on the BBSRC site.)

The new funding award will provide an additional 190 PhD studentships across the LIDo Partnership over the next five years, at least 55 of which will be for collaborative research with industry.
