We align the skills that scientists need in the bioeconomy to address global challenges. At PhD level, we support industrially relevant PhD Projects that bring biotechnology closer to industrialization.

Our PhD Studentships are championed by industry and led by an IBioIC academic partner or N8 Research Institution, and are aligned to the themes outlined by the CTP awards: Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (including Sustainable Feedstocks, Integrated Bioprocessing and Downstream Processing) and World Class Underpinning Bioscience (Synthetic Biology and Bio-catalysis and Biotransformation).

Our programme is designed to ensure that students are equipped with the technical knowledge and transferrable skills needed for their future careers.
