Closing date: Wednesday 13th January 2016
A short training visit for our PhD researchers and members of the Envision partnership to YES!Delft as an opportunity to examine this EU exemplar for promoting innovation and entrepreneurship amongst its students. The facility builds upon a 10 year programme of training offered to PhD students at Delft (Netherlands) and linked universities/institutes.
The global market for eco-industries has been estimated at roughly €1.15 trillion. With new environmental regulations, increasing prices for traditional energy resources and changing market demands, this figure is set to double with the average estimate for 2020 being around €2 trillion a year.
Envision brings together a powerful group of UK researchers with 44 industry and NGO partners to provide a new generation of environmental scientists with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to take on the challenges of a changing world.
Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Lancaster University is leading the initiative which brings together the Universities of Nottingham and Bangor, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the British Geological Survey and Rothamsted Research. The initiative also involves large multinationals, a large number of SMEs and international research centres.
Students will benefit from: broad research themes, access to leading world experts, close ties with business, relevant work experience and leadership training. Envision will recruit 12 PhD students per year for the next five years - starting from October 2014.
