Cranfield is seeking partners for this exciting new endeavour, and we are open to approaches from companies, charities and other NGOs. Our partners would benefit from a direct business contribution through supervised doctoral level research projects in mutually beneficial areas. The students will be selected on academic merit, as well as suitability to the project, to ensure the best candidate is selected.

We are looking for partners to make a minimum financial contribution of £5,000 per year for three years. This would contribute to travel, field work and laboratory related costs for the project. The University and the Sue White Fund for Africa will be contributing fees and student bursaries.

To find out more about the fund and opportunities for business collaboration, contact Dr Monica Rivas Casado.
