Call for iCASE project proposals: 2021 entry

iCASE studentships (formerly known as ‘ Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering’) are industrial, collaborative training grants from the BBSRC.  They provide students with a first-rate, challenging research training experience, allowing top quality bioscience graduates to undertake research, leading to a PhD, within the partner organisations.  In addition to experience of an industrial research environment, the students should receive business-related training, for example, in project management, business strategy and finance.  

As part of the DTP3 funding award, the White Rose BBSRC DTP has been awarded 7 CASE studentships per year, to be allocated over the academic years 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23.

This is now the call for studentships due to start in October 2021.

What is iCASE for? 

iCASE funding MUST be used to support industrial, collaborative studentships. The collaborations should be with as wide a range of companies and organisations as possible.  In particular, partnerships should be sought with small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and companies within the local area or which have specialist technical expertise.
