Envision DTP

Developing next generation leaders in environmental science. The Envision Doctoral Training Partnership will be awarding at least 16 fully funded studentships per year from 2019 - 2024.

What is Envision?

The Envision Doctoral Training Programme brings together a powerful group of UK researchers with 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.

International reach

The initiative also involves large multinationals, SMEs and international research centres.

Students benefit from broad research themes, access to leading world experts, close ties with business, relevant work experience and leadership training.

Envision accepts applications from students worldwide.

Envision DTP1 recruited 65 PhD students over five years from 2014 – 2019.

Envision DTP2 is awarding at least 16 fully funded studentships per year from 2019 – 2023.

What is a Doctoral Training Partnership?

Doctoral Training Partnerships are block grant awards made to consortia of research organisations. They support postgraduate studentships as well as providing innovative training environments for doctoral-level research. They include opportunities for PhD students to undertake broader training or development, such as language learning, overseas research visits, or placements with non-academic partners.
