Agri-Food and Industrial Biosciences CASE PhD Studentships


What are CASE Awards?

CASE (Co-operative Awards in Science and Engineering) studentships involve post-graduate students studying for a PhD through research with both an academic institution and a commercial company.

The student is predominantly based with the academic institution, but the research project is relevant to the needs of the industrial partner.

The industrial partner is expected to provide joint supervision of the student, a financial contribution to the project and relevant industrial placement(s) during the four years of the project.


KTN's Allocation of CASE PhD Studentships

The Knowledge Transfer Networks (KTN) has an allocation of CASE awards under an Industrial CASE Partnership agreement with BBSRC. 

These studentships will be awarded by the Animal Bioscience, Food, Industrial Bioscience, or Plants & Crops Sectors of the KTN through a competitive process and projects must fit within the remit of these sectors and the BBSRC.
