National Doctoral Training Alliance in Applied Biosciences for Health Autumn School

Please note that this event is only open to students and supervisors who are part of the National Doctoral Training Alliance programme.

Event Background

We've joined forces with twelve other University Alliance universities to launch a new kind of doctoral training programme that responds to industry needs and promotes the UK’s economic growth and productivity.

The largest multi-partner and only nationwide doctoral training initiative of its kind – the Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) builds on the research strengths and industry-focused ethos of Alliance universities. It aims to produce independent, highly-employable researchers with the expertise and skills in strategically-important research areas. The DTA offers fully funded postgraduate programmes, an expert network of support and improved employment opportunities for PhD researchers in a research-rich environment. 

Researchers from the Centre for Applied Biological and Exercise Sciences and the Centre for Technology-enabled Health are to be part of the first cohort.  Coventry will host the inaugural Autumn School on 29th-30th October which will see PhD students, supervisors and senior HE managers come together for two days of bespoke training and talks, as well as a networking dinner at Coombe Abbey. 

Speakers include: Diane Harbison, former head of business development at Edinburgh’s BioQuarter and managing director of BioCity Scotland and Rhys Anderson, Bioscientist and Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Vitae 2014 Three Minute Thesis.
