£850k funding to enhance facilities at CDTs
Loughborough has been awarded £850,000 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to increase its state-of-the-art equipment at its Centres for Doctoral Training in Embedded Intelligence and Regenerative Medicine.
The CDT in Embedded Intelligence is the first of its kind in Europe and aims to deliver high calibre employees and smarter products to industry. Loughborough’s academic partner in the Centre is Heriot Watt University.
Embedded Intelligence uses sensors and data processing to enable a product, process or service to reflect on its performance, and is seen in many devices in industry and even in home appliances, like smart energy monitoring systems.
The CDT in Regenerative Medicine brings together the complementary research skills at Loughborough and the two partner institutions involved in the Centre – Keele University and the University of Nottingham.
Regenerative Medicine is a globally important and fast-growing field of the healthcare industry, with the potential to revolutionise the sector and transform patients’ lives. It covers a wide range of therapies designed to enable damaged, diseased or defective skin, bone and other tissue, and even perhaps organs, to work normally again.
PhD students in the Centres put their research and training into real-life practice through a range of sponsored industrial projects, providing and excellent foundation for careers in the sector. Applications for studentships are now invited from well-qualified students who have First class honours or Upper Second class honours or equivalent. The deadline is 31 July 2014. Further information is available on the University’s Graduate School website.
