CASE Partners


Research and training opportunities within ACCE will be expanded and strengthened significantly through contributions from our CASE partners. These Partners bring important perspectives to the DTP, in helping to define the problems that will need to be addressed by environmental researchers of the future, and by offering insights into the world beyond the laboratory.

ACCE has 28 CASE partners who complement the disciplinary components of ACCE . Many of these CASE partners already work in a multidisciplinary context, and bring that experience with them to the partnership. The CASE partnership agreements will provide ACCE students with valuable access to datasets across the biological, environmental and social sciences. The CASE partners will also provide the interface to business, policy and society, both informally and formally through training courses, research visits and practicals. CASE partner have to be UK based and International partners can be eligible if they are able to offer the opportunity to gain skills that could not be provided by a UK-based equivalent, which could be justified by providing highly specialist skills which will be unique to an organisation’s geographical location, facilities, or way of working.

Student engagement with our Partners will help students to maximise the societal and scientific impact of their PhD research and will provide excellent opportunities for students during and beyond their degree.

We are looking for further engagement with other potential CASE partners and if you are representing an organization which would like to collaborate with ACCE please do not hesitate to get in touch.
