DTA3/COFUND extends our existing doctoral training initiatives in Applied Biosciences for Health, Energy and Social Policy internationally, with the support of a €6.5 million grant from the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD Fellowship programme.
As part of our wider Doctoral Training Alliance, DTA3 offers funding for international, interdisciplinary and industry-focused research, alongside a unique cohort-based PhD training programme. Our DTA3 PhD researchers have joined the programme from across the globe, we have welcomed exceptional fellows from New Zealand, India, Ethiopia, Brazil, Iran and Iceland (to name but a few). DTA3 trains and develops technical and professional skills in order to prepare them for employment across the globe in three strategically important areas: healthcare, clean energy and social policy. The programme fosters transnational mobility through an extended network of international associate partners across the world to provide recruitment and international placement opportunities.
