Are you a start-up, SME or third sector organisation? Looking for some PhD student support at no cost? Get in touch!
ECCI has just launched two of its successful innovation programmes again for 2018/19 - the SAGES Innovation and NERC Consultancy Innovation programmes.
The programmes are each on the hunt for low carbon businesses start-ups or SMEs and third sector organisations that have a meaningful research project that would be appropriate for a SAGES or NERC-funded PhD student. With a focus on geosciences subjects, the students' research areas of expertise include:
- climate adaptation and mitigation
- environmental pollution
- food and land use
- global climate change and weather patterns
- water and water governance
All internships are fully funded, with no cost to the business, and run from October 2018 - April 2019. Students can be based at ECCI or at the company premises for the duration of the internship. The placements are for 5 - 10 days over a maximum of 10 weeks.
If you are interested in submitting a research project for consideration, please fill in the form below by Wednesday 12 September 2018. There are limited placements – we will try our best to match organisations with students that have the required skills.
