A UK-wide investment of £350m will help to boost Oxford University training for the next generation of scientists and engineers, it was announced today.
Funding allocated by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) will see Oxford University lead six Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), and play a leading role in several others, out of over 70 CDTs established across the country. The investment was announced by Universities and Science Minister David Willetts today at a press conference in London.
