Industrial Doctorates

What does this involve?

The Data Lab offer funding for Industrial Doctorate programmes to support the development of high level data science talent Scotland. Highly–educated data experts in research and business are capable of forging cutting edge ideas and taking them to the next level. 

They co-fund industrial doctorate programmes at Scottish Universities, in collaboration with Scottish industry or public sector organisations.
