Partnership and collaboration with external organisations are a vital part of our commitment to cutting edge Research and Development (R&D) in data intensive science. We work closely with industry, the public sector and other organisations on a wide range of activities including joint projects (large and small), skills development training, technology transfer and event organisation and sponsorship.
For example, all of our students are undertaking an industry placement as part of their PhD. This gives them an excellent opportunity to apply their data science skills to real world challenges, whilst gaining knowledge and experience of working outside of academia.
The R&D of a placement project is in an area outside of the student’s core PhD research project to give them a new experience. Placements encourage mutually beneficial research collaboration between the CDT’s academic researchers, students and partner organisations.
We encourage you to explore our areas of expertise and read about ways of working with us. We are always interested in forging relationships and facilitate knowledge exchange with SMEs, global players and other clinical and business organisations.
