The Bartlett wins EPSRC funding for two CDTs

22 November 2013

The Bartlett has won a share of £350m funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for two Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT).

ScanLAB Projects, a SEAHA partner, create a unique permanent record of the Science Museums' Shipping Galleries using 3d scanning technology.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA), will be led by May Cassar, Professor at The Bartlett’s Institute for Sustainable Heritage.

The Centre will equip 60 heritage scientists and engineers with a range of interdisciplinary skills and open up a wide variety of opportunities, embracing heritage, industry and policy. SEAHA graduates will be perfectly placed to shape the future of heritage science in the UK, and globally. 

The London-Loughborough Centre for Doctoral Research in Energy Demand (LoLo) is an existing research partnership between the UCL Energy Institute and the Building Energy Research Group at Loughborough University. 

First set up as a CDT in 2009, the Centre will now have its funding renewed, and will continue its highly successful Masters of Research and PhD programmes, with a core focus on the energy performance of buildings: their technologies, and multiple interactions with people and the wider energy system.

EPSRC is investing in CDTs to address priority areas. The Centres funded as a result of this call will train the research leaders of the future and equip them with the knowledge, skills and creative approaches the UK requires.
