2018 NERC Industrial Strategy Innovation Placements
Supported through the National Productivity Investment Fund, NERC Industrial Strategy Innovation Placements enable recently completed PhD students working within NERC's remit to spend time with non-academic partners to explore impact from their research and develop links between academia and industry. Placements may be up to a maximum of 12 months in duration.
This is not a funding call.
