In June the AgriFoRwArdS CDT sent out an open call, to all potential CDT supervisors, for Studentship proposals that are defined in partnership with an industry partner.
In August, a similar call went out to the AgriFoRwArdS Industry Partners. The opportunity is for organisations to engage in a PhD studentship focused on their specific robotics challenges. For agri-food related businesses these could include the design of applications which advance process productivity, increase efficiency, or solve labour challenges; and for robotics related technology providers the focus could be on unlocking the next generation product offering to best meet the needs of the demanding food sector.
The successful projects which emerge from this call will be advertised on the AgriFoRwArdS website, from October 2020 onward, for students applying for September 2021 entry.
For more information regarding the project call out or if you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
