We fund a wide variety of PhD students to support the increase of new talent and ideas into our agricultural and horticultural sectors.
The aims of the AHDB PhD Studentship Programme are to:
- Develop the next generation of technical experts for the agriculture and horticulture industries
- Deliver useable scientific developments that are relevant to industry and AHDB strategy priorities
- Communicate findings of this research effectively with levy payers
Once a year, we bring together AHDB-funded students from universities across the UK to share their knowledge and expertise at our student conference, and they have the opportunity to learn more about our industries by visiting a variety of agricultural and horticultural businesses during the course of their studentship.
