Osborne announces 22 new Centres for Doctoral Training
Date:3/31/2014

Postgraduate training in a wide range of engineering and scientific fields important to the UK's economy received a further boost today. Twenty two new Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) were announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt. Hon George Osborne MP.

Mr Osborne made the announcement during a visit to the University of Manchester, which has been successful in securing funding for one of the new Centres.

The new CDTs come on top of the 91 Centres previously announced by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in November 2013 and January 2014.

EPSRC and other research councils have been able to fund these new Centres following a 106 million investment announced in the Budget, and by negotiating with universities, industrial partners and the Scottish Funding Council, to maximise the number of centres and the students they will be supporting.

Mr Osborne said: "A forward looking, modern industrial strategy is part of our long term economic plan to deliver security, jobs and growth to all parts of the UK. Our 500 million investment in Centres for Doctoral Training will inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, ensuring Britain leads the world in high-tech research and manufacturing."

This latest Government investment in a further 1,100 students through an additional 22 Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), brings the total investment in CDTs to over 500 million.

In addition, universities, industry and other charitable partners will be adding a further 70 million to their already large contribution of 374 million to support the training of tomorrow's scientists and engineers. The combined public and private investment amounts to over 950 million.

Professor David Delpy, Chief Executive of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), said: "We have been working hard with universities and partners to ensure that as many Centres as possible can be supported.

"The CDT model has proved highly popular with universities and industry and these new Centres will mean that the UK is even better placed to maintain the vital supply of trained scientists and engineers."
