Supporting doctoral training with other funders

To enable a sustainable innovation landscape in the UK it is important for us to work with our fellow Research Councils and other agencies to provide training that encourages interdisciplinary research.

We do this through doctoral training centres and developing opportunities with our partners that focus on key research priorities.

    This is a BBSRC-NERC joint centre, administered by NERC, led by Lancaster
  • Joint BBSRC-EPSRC Synthetic Biology Centre for Doctoral Training (SynBioCDT)
