Re-inventing the energy world
Centres for Doctoral
Training, or CDTs for short, are funded by
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) in our case by the Engineering and Physical
Sciences Council (EPSRC).
As well was being part of their research group, PhD students in CDTs are trained in cohorts. Students take part in a structured cohort-wide training programme (see our training section), building their scientific network and opportunities for collaboration.
Please note that recuitment into this CDT has now ended.
Our goal is to support major reductions in
society’s carbon footprint by finding radically different ways to operate our
existing energy systems. We need to reduce or eliminate their carbon dioxide
emissions to address climate change concerns and eliminate use of fossil fuels
while ensuring affordable and reliable energy.
The Centre is designed to be industrially focussed. We ensure that all the projects are targeted at meeting specific current and future needs of our partners. We work with numerous companies which cover a broad range of energy-intensive industries.
