Are you a company with an amazing idea for a project, but no university partner yet in place? Or are you a university that's keen to be involved, but hasn't yet found the ideal company? Hopefully this group can help to facilitate some new ICASE collaborations.
Simply hit 'Add Comment' below this article to state who you are (you must be logged in to add a comment), what you can offer (i.e. areas of specialisation if a university, a brief project outline or need if a company) and what you're looking for in a partner. If there seems to be a match, you can request the relevant person as a contact on _connect, then communicate further via email. Several things to bear in mind:
Priority will be given to proposals in the priority areas identified by the CIKTN which are given on this Group's homepage.
Although SMEs and Micro enterprises are encouraged to apply, companies need to be able to demonstrate that they are registered as income generating for at least two years and have submitted accounts. They will also need to have premises from where the student can operate: the idea is to provide a suitable research environment which benefits the student's learning process.
The student will have to spend at least three months a year on site at the company, so realistically it makes sense for the company and university to be located relatively near to each other - although, of course, many PhD students are willing to travel a reasonable distance.
