Registration is now open for our information and networking session "CONNECT" event on Tuesday 17th February from 4pm to 6pm.

All of our PhD students are co-sponsored by industry, which means each individual PhD project benefits from both academic supervision and strong involvement of industrial partners.

Do you have a research challenge or idea but lack the expertise or resource?
Would you like to have a PhD student dedicated to a topic relevant to your business needs, and supported by a world-class training scheme?
Does your company want to invest in future talent for your sector?

CONNECT will allow companies to find out about our unique PhD programme, discuss areas of interest and expertise with our academic staff and learn about how your company can benefit from co-sponsoring a PhD student.

Attendees will be asked to provide a 5 minute pitch about their company or sector and, either what they are looking for or, what they can offer. This will be followed by time for discussion and networking to broker companies with academics to identify complementary research interests.
