The North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership is made up of a partnership of seven institutions in the North West (Keele, Lancaster, Liverpool, Manchester, MMU, RNCM and our own University of Salford).
The AHRC-funded scheme offers academics and non-HEI organisations from the private, public or third sectors the opportunity to develop a bespoke, three-year PhD project with funding awarded to the host University to provide a PhD researcher with a stipend for the duration of their programme.
The NWCDTP Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) scheme is now open for applications for projects starting in the 2022-23 academic year.
The award aims to encourage and develop collaborative research and beneficial partnerships, providing opportunities for doctoral researchers to develop innovative research with direct impact onto an industry organisation and the wider community.
