CASE (Co-operative Awards in Science and Engineering) awards are organised by the UK Research Councils (e.g. BBSRC, EPSRC, etc). They fund top quality graduates to undertake a programme of research training in a partnership between an eligible academic institution and a co-operating company. Students spend part of their training period working within the company, and are jointly supervised by an academic and a company supervisor.
Any BBSRC Doctoral Training Grant (DTG) studentship can be jointly supervised with an industrial company as a CASE studentship. If you are interested contact potential supervisors directly.
CASE studentships are already available in the following areas:

- BBSRC/CASE PhD Studentship sponsored by Philips Research Laboratories, Redhill, UK "Actively and Individually Addressable arrays of Biomembranes" with Dr Lars Jeuken
