The Horizon Doctoral Training Centre is based at The University of Nottingham and is supported by a £6 million investment from Research Councils UK, The University of Nottingham and over 30 industry partners.
Internationally recognised as a leading research university, The University of Nottingham is one of the top five UK universities for collaborations with industry and the private sector, leading to cutting-edge research solutions that make a real difference to modern day science and society.
Each year Horizon recruits 10-20 students on to our PhD programme from a wide range of backgrounds including positioning, computer science, engineering, business, geography, psychology, HCI and other arts, science and social science disciplines.
Students spend 4 years experiencing an innovative PhD programme that combines a PhD research project with training in interdisciplinary research innovation skills and an industrial internship.
During early 2011 the Horizon DTC provided a report to Research Council's UK (RCUK) which was used to evaluate the Centre's performance.
In August 2011 RCUK provided the results of the evaluation which included the following comments:
"There is a strong multidisciplinary approach, right from year 1 for the students. The large demand for a place at the centre is noteworthy ... It is impressive that every student carries out an internship ... The SME engagement process is also to be commended and it is pleasing to see that some students will interact with several SMEs during their training."
We are all delighted with the results of the evaluation and look forward to delivering world leading digital economy research in the future.
