CASE studentships - collaborative/industrial placements Before allocating a CASE studentship award it is imperative that you ensure that the nonacademic partner (e.g. industry) is eligible. Further information on eligibility can be found in the Studentship Handbook. UK-based organisations can be considered as the non-academic partner if they can provide students with distinctive research training and experience not available in an academic setting. These organisations may include Charities, Trusts and Levy Bodies.
BBSRC now stipulates a placement period of a minimum of 3 months, and up to a maximum of 18 months. The required placement period can be accrued through a number of shorter placements, if appropriate. CASE studentships (formerly known as 'Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering') are collaborative training grants that provide students with a first-rate challenging research training experience, allowing top quality bioscience graduates to undertake research, leading to a PhD, within the context of a mutually beneficial research collaboration between academic and partner organisations. In addition, to experience of an industrial research environment, the student should receive business-related training, for example, in project-management, business strategy and/or finance.
