PHD CALL FOR PROJECTS

IBioIC Open Call for 2021 Funding

The call for projects to enter the IBioIC CTP in October 2021 is now open. 15 fully-funded  BBSRC studentships plus up to 3 50% IBioIC funded studentships are available via application from HEI's across the UK. All projects require at least one industrial partner at application stage.

Selection Criteria

PhD projects will be selected on their technical merits. All projects meeting the minimum criteria set out in the call documentation will be scored by three independent assessors from an approved pool of reviewers using a points system. The assessors will also comment on whether the work will lead to an awardable PhD. Projects scoring above the points system threshold will be technically eligible for funding. Funding will be awarded to projects scoring above the threshold and in descending order from the highest score until all studentships are filled. Cash contribution from the industrial partner may also be taken into consideration during assessment where differences between scoring is marginal. Technical merits include technical feasibility, technical ambition, degree of innovation and industrial relevance.

Call closes: 5th October 2020
