  • Down to Earth: Catalysis using Earth Abundant Metal
  • Psus – A Sustainable Phosphorus Future
  • Plastics from Plants Initiative (PPI)

CDT Training Programme

Our students will undertake a 4-year PhD programme, where the first year offers the opportunity to access a balanced combination of Core and Research Theme training activities. The Core training aims to equip students with knowledge and tools related to the broader aspects of their research such as sustainability, entrepreneurial skills, and responsible research and innovation, and will include a wide range of workshops focusing on professional skills, career development and wellbeing. Research Theme training is focused on the topics specific to each of the three Themes. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops, group activities and lab sessions.

Over the remaining three years, whilst working on their research projects, students will continue to receive cross-disciplinary training and research, and will be presented with a wide range of additional training opportunities tailored to support them at the different stages of their PhD cycle.
