The Doctoral Training Alliance is University Alliance’s flagship programme, making funded doctoral fellowships available across the UK’s leading professional and technical universities. At its heart, the programme is committed to being International, Interdisciplinary and Intersectoral.

In the series The DTA is Intersectoral, we showcase how our funded PhDs cut across different sectors, building bridges between academia and industry, and provides students with the skills and experience required by industry through work placements and research partnerships.

In part one of the series hear from two of our researchers on their experience working with industry and the benefits this has brought to their academic careers.

The DTA programme has been extended following a €6.5million award from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) COFUND Doctoral scheme.
