By the start of the 3-year PhD, each student will have acquired a strong skills foundation through cohort and personalised training, carried out background and exploratory studies and generated a detailed plan of their PhD work programme in collaboration with their academic and industry supervisors.

FIBE-CDT PhD students will then spend both time on their core research topic as well as ongoing bespoke CDT training activities including:

  1. Impact studies 
  2. Engagement with  policy makers, the general public and relevant stakeholders 
  3. Activities linked with the  industry co-supervisors
  4. Placement with an international academic partner 
  5. Integration studies 
  6. Transferable RI, ethics and professional upskillling 

The objective is to enrich the students’ PhD research experience and ensure wider impact, application and benefits to society. 

Details of available projects are under Research Themes and Projects.
