Industrial Case Awards are available through responsive mode.
- The proposed project must be within the EPSRC funding remit.
- Three and four year studentships are possible. To qualify for a three year award, the student must already have a Masters level qualification.
- The project partner must make a cash contribution of at least 33% of the value of the UCL award (further details). Applicants should seek advice from UCL Research Finance for a detailed costing before discussing costs with potential partners.
- The student must spend a minimum of three months working at partner site(s).
- While work may take place at partner site(s) outside the UK, the industry partner must have a registered UK address. The industry partner must cover all visiting costs.
- Proposals will be considered for funding, where: (a) a project and project student have been identified, and/or; (b) a project and industry partner have been identified. It is a given in both cases that the UCL supervisor(s) will have been identified.
- The student (proposed or recruited) must be eligible for EPSRC funding.
An overview of the panel review guidelines may also be accessed here.
Proposals should be in the form of a two A4 page case for support (single-sided) describing the research question and proposed project, with a breakdown of partner commitments. Project supervisor(s) should be named. A minimum font-size of 10pt, with top and side margins of no less than 1cm should be used. Where the industry partner has been identified, a letter of intent should be appended. Where the student has been identified, their (short) CV should be appended.
All supporting documentation must be submitted with the application by the closing date. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
Projects that have not started within 3 months of award will be retracted. The supervisor(s) are responsible for confirming the project start to the BEAMS Doctoral Training Manager.
