The STOR-i CDT is an EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training at Lancaster University. It's the scene of leading research efforts in statistics and operational research, with a strong focus on industry collaboration. The training programme begins with a one-year MRes course, which gives exposure to a range of research areas. This is followed by a three-year PhD project, many of which are developed with industrial partners. Over recent years, STOR-i has developed links with leading UK industries such as BT, Met Office, and Rolls Royce. A full list of the current PhD collaborators can be found here. These valuable partnerships allow for practicable research where the often disconnected worlds of academia and industry combine.
