ICASE Awards to support collaborative research projects in industrial mathematics

Posted on: 12/10/2017

Industrial CASE (ICASE) awards are four-year postgraduate awards allocated jointly to company and university.

The Smith Institute, in conjunction with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, wishes to allocate four Industrial CASE (ICASE) postgraduate awards in support of new collaborative research projects in industrial mathematics. Each project will be a four-year partnership between a company and university, leading to the completion of a PhD. Companies in all business areas are eligible. The scientific focus of the project should be in some branch of the mathematical sciences, broadly interpreted to include the mathematical areas of statistics, operations research, data science and computing.

The aim of the awards is to enable companies to take the lead in defining and arranging projects with an academic partner of their choice. To be eligible as an ICASE partner, companies must have an established UK-based research and/or commercial production capability. The PhD project must be formally agreed between the company and the university partner. ICASE allocations are made as studentships, and must be allocated to universities that already have a Doctoral Training Partnership with EPSRC.

The timetable for the awards is as follows:
27th October 2017: The attached application form to be completed and returned
10th November 2017: Successful applicants notified
20th November 2017: Successful applicants announced at the Alan Tayler Day, St Catherine’s College, Oxford
30th November 2017: Sign-up forms for new projects due at EPSRC.
