The partnership

The NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP) brings together 10 of the UK’s leading research institutions in NERC science.  The Partnership builds on the Great Western Four alliance of four universities in the South West and Wales:  Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter + six Research Organisations to encompass the full range of NERC science.


Research organisations

Non-academic partners play a key role in the development of the DTP training programme.  The programme has 24 associate partners that represent the full range of employers of NERC science PhD graduates.  All associate partners are stakeholders in enhancing training of PhD graduates and see the DTP as a vehicle to refine and strengthen training in response to evolving demands.  Associate partners are committed to providing workplace secondments, CASE support for relevant projects and student training opportunities.
