Working with you

The ACCE DTP combines the world-class academic strengths of the Universities of Liverpool, Sheffield and York and the unique scientific expertise of the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and the Natural History Museum. ACCE works collaboratively with organisations outside of higher education for student training, and placements. This is so that ACCE graduates are rounded experts, who have the skills to contribute to the future of environmental research. We aim to create projects that are contemporary and applied, that solve problems and build knowledge. For this, working with our valued partners is vital.

If you are interested to work with our academic experts and our talented students and become an ACCE Partner, there are a number of ways you can be involved; one route is to be a partner supervisor on an ACCE studentship project.

A core principle of ACCE is to encourage studentships that incorporate genuine collaborations between academics and non-academic, end-user partners. Whereas in previous years we have focussed these on defined ‘Highlight Topics’, for studentships starting in 2023 we are taking partnership PhD proposals from across the breadth of the Adapting to Challenges in a Changing Environment theme (see for a list of research foci covered by ACCE).  All proposals will be considered that demonstrate clear co-design between an academic or academic supervisory team and a supervisor from a partner organisation. You will be required to evidence this co-design in the ACCE application. We strongly encourage supervisors who developed an unsuccessful proposal in previous highlight topic rounds to resubmit that proposal.

Please download the Partner Guide document below for full information on ways to become an ACCE partner.
