Funded 3-Year RnD Opportunities for Businesses
Does your business have an unresolved environmental issue, or need to develop new products and services?
Are you constrained by limited resources or the costs of traditional R&D?
Are you able to work with us to outline a challenging project before April?
The Lancaster Environment Centre can enable you to access funded PhD studentships to address your issues.
Current priority areas for funding are:
- Adoption of green chemical processes
- Carbon stewardship & climate change
- Food security & sustainable production
- Emerging energy technologies
- Environmental measurement & instrumentation
- In-situ land remediation
- Management of diffuse pollution
- Maintaining healthy soils
The 2010 deadline will be in April.
To participate, you will need to provide £7000 a year for 3 years, in return for £66,000 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
Good projects should be focused, achievable and provide a range of training opportunities for the student.
Academic rigour to challenge the student and allow them to develop solutions to real problems is also important, as is at least a 3 month placement with you.
Projects receive thorough academic supervision, are supported by a £35 million 300+ researcher facility and are jointly managed with you.
Besides developing new products or services and gaining a graduate dedicated to your project over 3.5 years, benefits to you include access to:
- Our expertise and ideas
- New graduates
- Intelligence on competitors through literature searches
- Our extensive facilities
- Scientific publications
