A key part of PhD Today’s focus will be on funding: where it comes from, the forms of research it both encourages and discourages, and its subsequent impact on knowledge and the economy. We are delighted to announce a Keynote Panel on this issue, involving figures with first-hand experience of the questions it poses. Attendees will be able to ask questions and participate in a debate at the end of the panel.
The panel members so far include Dr. Ann-Marie Coriat, head of the highly influential Medical Research Council, and Professor Peter Batey, Director of the ESRC division of the North West Doctoral Training Centre. We expect to confirm the remaining participants very soon.
