The International Doctoral Innovation Centre (IDIC) is a pioneering doctoral training centre established at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) in 2012. The IDIC is a joint venture between UNNC, The University of Nottingham, Ningbo Education Bureau, Ningbo Science and Technology Bureau and China’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), along with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the UK. We aim to train 100 of the brightest early career PhD researchers over six years, focussing on the areas of digital technologies and energy technologies. Their training here at UNNC will help to develop innovative solutions that will address major global academic and industry challenges. We encourage enthusiastic candidates from a variety of academic backgrounds to apply for our prestigious PhD scholarships.
