Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA)

Call for proposals

We are very pleased to be able to formally launch the call for proposals to WRoCAH’s Collaborative Awards (CDA) scheme for studentships that will begin in October 2024.

Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) bring academic researchers together with non-academic organisations to do exciting applied research that would not be possible without access to the expertise and facilities that both parties bring.

They offer the opportunity to build long term research relationships across sectors, and give doctoral researchers the chance to gain first-hand experience of the context for applied research outside academia.

Long term relationships bring long-term benefits for both collaborating partners, who gain access to resources and materials, knowledge and expertise to provide social, cultural and economic benefits to wider society.


Key date: 12 noon GMT on Wednesday 13th December 2023
