SEPnet’s SME-DTN funded by Research England Development Fund held their second online sandpit on Wednesday, 15 September 2021. Led by Professor Stephen Sweeney, Academic Lead, University of Surrey and Cristobel Soares, Project Manager for the SME-DTN, the aim of this event was to explore industry relevant collaborative PhD research projects in defence and security.
Thank you to our industry partners Airbus, AWE, DSTL, the National Physical Laboratory, Quantum Dice and Thales who attended the sandpit event. Representatives from each company presented their research problems to SEPnet academics to identify synergies and viable future PhD research projects.
Research England Development Fund is supporting this scheme and providing funding for 12 PhD projects from 2020-2024. If you are a small, medium or large company and would like to collaborate with a SEPnet institution in developing an industry relevant PhD research project in physics, engineering or computer science please visit: www.sepnet.ac.uk/sme/dtn for further information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
