We welcome applications to our 2022-23 Collaborative Doctoral Award scheme. CDAs offer academics and non-HEI organisations from the private, public or third sectors the opportunity to develop a bespoke, three-year PhD project with funding awarded to the host University to provide a PhD researcher with a stipend for the duration of their programme.

The award aims to encourage and develop collaborative research and beneficial partnerships, providing opportunities for doctoral researchers to develop innovative research with direct impact onto an industry organisation and the wider community. 

Read more on how CDAs work and see our Guidance document on our dedicated web page. 

Applications can be submitted online until 15 October 2021. 

Academic colleagues who would like support and advice on a possible application can contact the NWCDTP office to book a 30-minute one-to-one session.
