COFUND DTA3: Extended University Alliance Doctoral Training Alliance in Energy, Applied Biosciences for Health

Project: Other

Project Details


This is a COFUND project, led by the University Alliance and involving 15 UA universities, including UH. The DTA3 will develop 83 early-stage researchers (ESRs) as internationally connected, independent researchers with interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral skills and experience, ready for industrial employment in the European and UK priority challenge areas of healthcare, clean energy and social policy. Building on existing individual doctoral programmes, DTA3 is delivered through a consortium of 15 universities across England and Wales, with associate partners in Europe and Australia. COFUND will support the full integration of three existing individual programmes of training in applied biosciences for health, energy and social policy. This will increase the employability gains for graduate ESRs, who will benefit both from deep subject expertise and a broad understanding of the global challenges in these three key sectors. This responds to identified employer needs and will enable ESRs to transfer quickly and easily into a range of industry roles across the globe
after their study.

UH has agreed to take on 6 PhD students. If we were to hire our full complement of 6, we would get €470,880, but have to contribute €479,892 (based on international PhD tuition fees so less if the students are not international) as this is a co-funded scheme.
