ESTECO supports Centres for Doctoral Training at Warwick University

We congratulate the University of Warwick on getting funds from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for new Centers for Doctoral Training (CDT): Mathematics for Real-Word Systems (MathSys) and Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems (HetSys).

The University of Warwick is to benefit from over £10 million in funding for two cutting-edge centres to train the next generation of doctoral level students in one of the UK’s most significant investments in research skills. ​

"This success is a testament to the quality of our students and supervisors over the first 5 years of the Mathematics for Real-Word Systems CDT, but also to the strong engagement of our external partners and the novel and exciting research problems they have posed for our teams: MathSys II received an exceptionally strong endorsement from external partners with over £1.5M in direct and in- ​kind support. The latest competition for CDTs was very strong and we are therefore particularly grateful to ESTECO for your support. Over the next decade, we will train fifty PhD students in the advanced quantitative skills and applied mathematical modelling critical to address the contemporary challenges arising from biomedicine and health sectors, modern industry and the digital economy" said Prof. Magnus Richardson, Director of MathSys.

The University has also announced EPSRC funding for the new Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems CDT. The unique cohort experience and bespoke training programme, which includes transferable computing skills, will enable students to work across the University’s departments of Physics, Engineering, Chemistry and Mathematics and the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG). HetSys will train enthusiastic students from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. "Here at Warwick we are really excited about the opportunities for new projects and strengthening collaboration with our project partners that HetSys brings and very much hope that ESTECO will play an important role" said Prof. Julie Staunton from the Department of Physics.
