The CDT in Applied Photonics is a consortium of academic and industrial researchers with the objective of supporting industrially-informed doctoral research projects related to photonics and optics. Any company with a research activity in the UK is eligible to participate.

To propose a project, please complete the Project Proposal Form (see attachment below) and return this to the Centre email address.

The Academic Supervisor can be based at any of the six partner Universities – Strathclyde, St Andrews, Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh or Heriot-Watt.

Ideally the proposal would be discussed in detail with the proposed Academic Supervisor, however, this is not essential as a Supervisor can be appointed at a later stage.
