Five opportunities are available for organisations and students to help develop the next generation of medical and implantable devices, helping patients and the healthcare industry, as well as forging strong collaborations between the science and technology sectors.
CASE Studentships, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and supported by The HealthTech and Medicines KTN, provide an excellent mechanism for engaging universities and industry through training and technology transfer, with successful candidates being picked by both the university and company. Projects must be in the engineering or physical sciences and are jointly supervised by the academic and industrial partners.
The technical scope is broad with the main emphasis on encouraging adventurous research for improved health technologies, whilst engaging with the industrial and clinical base to provide a route to the market.
Proposals should be received by the KTN electronically by 16:30 on Thursday 11 March 2010.
