The government sponsors new PhDs and researchers as part of £370 million investment to transform healthcare, improve mental health diagnosis and build more sustainable transport.

A combined government and industry investment of £370 million will deliver 2,700 new PhD places in biosciences and AI.

Of this, £200 million will fund 1,000 new PhD places over the next 5 years to study AI which could help diagnose diseases like cancer earlier and make industries, including aviation and automotive, more sustainable. The first 200 students will be studying at 14 universities across the country, working closely with 300 leading businesses, including AstraZeneca, Google, Rolls-Royce and NHS Trusts.
