Associate Partners

The London NERC DTP seeks to establish close links with a variety of external organisations and build a network of Associate Partners. We seek to make connections with organisations that have a wealth of well-established links (for example, industry, NGOs and the public sector) for research and training purposes.

These links offer the potential for collaborative research projects, CASE studentships, internships, consultancy and advisory roles. We believe these mutually beneficial collaborative experiences lead to enhanced commercial and enterprise skills for our students, and offer our associate partners access to a pool of motivated, high-quality PhD students undertaking cutting-edge research relevant to their organisations’ priorities and objectives. The DTP provides opportunities to explore novel research collaborations and strengthen current partnerships.

CASE Partnerships

CASE partner organisations have partnered with and invested directly into a particular PhD studentship, helping to shape the research throughout the students' PhDs and offering real-world insight to academic research.

The following organisations are currently CASE Partners to one or more of our students:

  • Bayer
  • British Geological Survey
  • CABI
  • Conservation International
  • Dyson Technology Ltd
  • International Institute for Environment and Development
  • Microsoft Research
  • Natural England
  • Network Stratigraphic
  • RSPB
  • Rutherford-Appleton Laboratory
  • The Angling Trust
  • The Broads Authority
  • The Fishmonger's Company
  • Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust
  • ZSL Conservation Programmes

Become an Associate Partner

Associate partner organisations are listed on our website, and are given the opportunity to attend our Meet the Associate Partners event each November, where they have the chance to introduce their organisation's research interests, and network with our newest cohort of students to shape and develop research projects that address relevant real-world problems. They also receive updates on opportunities and events within the DTP, such as internships, studentships and collaboration opportunities. If your organisation would like to become an Associate partner of the DTP please complete this brief form and we will be in touch.
