Information for UK academic institutions, research groups or research centres about calls for PhD funding.
The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) operates the UK-France PhD programme and various smaller individual PhD calls. Calls for PhD-level research will each have a different theme and application process. We welcome applications to PhD level research calls from UK institutions with leading academics, research groups or research centres.
We do not accept applications from individual students; if you are a student you will need to approach a relevant department at a university.
