Interdisciplinary Research Centre
Future Cities Prize Fellowships - PhD student opportunities

The Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment is pleased to announce the first annual Research Student competition on the topic of Future Cities for University of Cambridge students. Eight PhD students will receive £2000 each to develop a short (at most 10,000 words) research paper and summarise the findings in a poster to present to a bespoke conference in Cambridge during March 2016.

The subject of the paper and poster may be any topic related to innovative ideas and/or analyses concerning how cities of the future might be designed, operated and lived within to meet social, economic and environmental aims. While the subject of the research will ideally be related to the student’s dissertation research topic, there is no requirement that this be the case.


Application deadline: Wednesday 30th September at 5pm.
