Horizon CDT impact grant recipients (internal CDT funding):
The Horizon Centre for Doctoral Training has invested in nine responsive internal impact grants (from EPSRC grant reference EP/G037574/1) for current Horizon CDT students and Horizon CDT alumni to extend the potential impact of their research. The awards are designed to support the first investigative steps of taking EPSRC-funded research towards commercialisation or on to other forms of economic, societal, environmental and policy-based impact.
