Hub Training

The Hub is committed to training PhD students, EngD’s and postdoctoral researchers. All students and postdoctoral researchers affiliated with the Hub are encouraged to continue to engage beyond their initial project and are supported by the Hub Staff Development Policy.

The following opportunities are available to help build on their expertise and skills and to further their professional development:

International Exchange Programme

The Hub International student exchange scheme has established partnerships in research programmes across 23 leading institutions in 12 countries. The programme offers the opportunity for students to participate in an exchange to a partnering institution where they will  expand their knowledge and be exposed to the latest technologies championed by leading academic and research institutes whilst undertaking joint research activities for a period of up to 3 months.

The Researchers Network

The Researchers Network is an effective delivery mechanism for developing skills and providing training. This network administers Hub Early-Career Feasibility Studies (£5k), which give younger Hub members the opportunity to express their independent ideas and experience the peer-review process.

The next and final Innovation Fellowship Call will be launched in July 2021.
