Lancaster University will lead on training scientists of the future who will improve our understanding of soils, which are key to tackling many of today’s global challenges, including food, water and energy security.
This follows major funding to launch a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in soil science. It has been awarded to the Soils Training and Research Studentships (STARS) consortium led by Professor Phil Haygarth. The other members of the consortium are the Universities of Bangor, Cranfield, Nottingham, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Rothamsted Research, the British Geological Survey and the James Hutton Institute.
