Recent AHRC CDA successes

The University of Nottingham is pleased to announce the award of two successful AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) in the final round of the competition. CDAs provide funding for doctoral studentship projects, proposed by a university-based academic, to work in collaboration with an organisation outside of higher education. They are intended to encourage and develop collaboration and partnerships providing opportunities for doctoral students to gain first-hand experience of work outside the university environment and enhance the employment-related skills and training a research student gains during the course of their award. The projects encourage and establish links that can have long-term benefits for both collaborating partners, providing access to resources and materials, knowledge and expertise that may not otherwise have been available and also provide social, cultural and economic benefits to wider society.

Dr Liz Evans, Culture, Film and Media

From October 2016 AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Awards will be embedded in Doctoral Training Partnerships and Centres for Doctoral Training.
