Funding for PhD (Digital Civics)

The EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Digital Civics at Newcastle University is open for applications and will train a minimum of 55 doctoral students (5 annual intakes of at least 11 students) in the design, deployment and evaluation of community-driven digital technologies and services.
Whether it is through the redesign of local services with communities, or rethinking how citizens can and do interact with local government, technology innovation and design has a critical role to play in enabling digitally connected citizens and communities.
The CDT in Digital Civics is a unique partnership between Newcastle University, Newcastle City Council, Gateshead Council and Northumberland County Council, and a range of local, national and global industry and third sector partners. The CDT aims to deliver applied research training for doctoral researchers and includes a program of intensive training and research, and internships and placements at some of the world’s leading charities (including the Royal Town Planning Institute), companies and universities.
