Centres for Doctoral Training (Mathematical Sciences)

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, has announced 22 new Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT). The new CDTs come on top of the 91 Centres previously announced by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in November 2013 and January 2014. This latest government investment in a further 1,100 students through these additional 22 Centres brings the total investment in CDTs to over £500 million.
