Six scholarships which hope to help nurture future talent in the UK’s burgeoning offshore wind sector are being offered at the University of Hull. The scholarships, announced by the Aura Centre for Doctoral Training, led by the University’s Energy and Environment Institute, will start in September this year, and each look to address a challenge facing the sector.
Run in partnership with the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, the fully-funded scholarships include a year’s postgraduate diploma training, followed by three years of PhD research.
The Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment is led by the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull, alongside academic partners Durham, Newcastle and Sheffield Universities and over 20 industry partners.
