The deadline for submitting proposals is Thursday 8th November.  Proposals will be reviewed by the CDT Research Board in late November, with the intention that awarded projects will be opened for recruitment in December 2018

We also welcome applications for 2019-20 from teams who can secure at least 50% funding from a partner organisation.  Eligible partner organisations must be external to Imperial College and may include industry, charity or, exceptionally, government sources. Joint proposals may be submitted on a rolling basis up to a final deadline of Friday 31st May 2019.  However, early applications are encouraged, as funding for joint projects is limited.
