Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering – Industry Doctorate Programme (SRPe-IDP)

SRPe is delighted to announce the launch of its new SRPe Industry Doctorate Programme (SRPe-IDP).

A total of 12 project awards are available across the following SRPe strategic themes:

•    Engineering at the Life Sciences Interface
•    Infrastructure and Environment
•    Robotics and Autonomous Systems

Successful projects will be driven by industry / technology-user demand and address key areas of  industrial / technology-user challenge, opportunity or skills development need from across a wide spectrum of organisations and industry / technology-user sectors.

The SRPe-IDP projects must be delivered collaboratively between an SRPe university and an industrial company / technology-user organisation.

The industrial company / technology-user organisation must act as a co-investigator / co-supervisor engaged directly with the research, and the SRPe university must be the lead applicant and academic supervisor / host.

The SRPe-IDP will provide funding towards the fees and stipend at 50% (up to a maximum of £40K over 4 years), with the university and the industry / technology-user partner providing the remaining 50%, with the minimum threshold for industry / technology-user funding contribution set at 40%. All additional project costs are to be provided by the university and industry / technology-user organisation partner.

Projects funded under this scheme are due to commence between 1st October 2019 and 31st December 2019 and will be of 4 years duration.

Deadline for application is 5pm on Friday 31st May 2019
