Our MRes is the strong foundation you need to build essential skills and conduct your own research in STOR through a PhD that engages you with real-world research
The MRes year leads to a PhD undertaking research that makes a real impact through collaborations with industry or world-leading universities partners
Our industrial partners span a wide range of sectors and these collaborations offer benefits to our students across every year of the STOR-i programme.
STOR-i internships offer a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to experience and learn how Statistics and Operational Research can tackle challenging, real-life practical problems.
What is STOR-i?
STOR-i was established in 2010 as an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training. Its academic prowess and high levels of success have led to a further investment from 2019 with an increased capacity of potential students to 70 in total across the full cohort. This is a multi-million pound award from EPSRC, substantial support from Lancaster University and an additional £5.2m from Industrial Partners. All partners see a national need for the cohort-based approach offered by STOR-i and together will expand on its existing success.
Partnerships with industry
Industrial partnerships are at the forefront of STOR-i’s work. MRes and PhD students inspire leading research that has a genuine impact on the organisations they work with. Whether this is a one-off problem-solving day or a three-year PhD, the industrial organisations that work with STOR-i receive a tangible benefit. Many industrial organisations have chosen to partner STOR-i with a long-term commitment, to the benefit of our students.
