Cranfield University to participate in two Centres for Doctoral Training

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), has announced Cranfield University’s participation in two Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT).

Cranfield is the lead institution in the Water Infrastructure and Resilience CDT led by Professor Peter Jarvis, with partner universities Sheffield and Newcastle. It will also feature in the Water and Waste Infrastructure Systems Engineered for Resilience (Water-WISER) CDT led by the University of Leeds.

Professor Paul Jeffrey, director of water at Cranfield University, said:

“This investment in doctoral training centres at Cranfield demonstrates the strength of our water science research and educational offering.

“Our lives and livelihoods are dependent on the natural and engineered water cycles. Research and skills development in water treatment and management has never been more vital. These CDTs will enable the brightest junior research minds to expand their thinking and seek to out the innovative solutions to global challenges.”
