The Bristol Doctoral College leads on facilitating postgraduate research collaborations with external partners.
We work with external partners - including industry, cultural organisations, charities and government bodies - around the world to develop strategic collaborations for doctoral research. We work with other teams across the University to set up collaborations, including sponsored doctoral research and placements with industry.
We provide consultation on available funding opportunities, work together to co-develop innovative funding models and support the development of Collaborative Framework Agreements in doctoral training and research.
If you would like to discuss opportunities for collaborative doctoral research, we can help find mutually beneficial ways of working in partnership with us and our postgraduate researchers.
To find out more about how we work with industry, please email Dr Aby Sankaran, the Bristol Doctoral College’s Industrial PhD Programme Officer, or Dr Oksana Kasyutich, the Bristol Doctoral College Manager.
