ONE Planet offers a cohort-based doctoral training partnership at Newcastle and Northumbria Universities. The Natural and Environmental Research Council (NERC) funds the partnership.
Ensuring that students are trained in key skills and the requisite knowledge base means that ONE Planet partners span industry, regulatory authorities to government with dedicated placements aligned with the Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – aiming to bring together the UK’s world-leading research with business – clean growth and the knowledge economy.
