TODO: Add intro & GoalsThe selection process is opened to PhD supervisors from any University in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It is quite competitive with less than 20% of applications being selected. This is done through a standard process based on reviews by internal and external experts. To ensure relevance the final selection is done by our researchers. One of the unique features of the programme, is that once a project selected, the supervisor has up to a year to find the best possible student for the project. The rational being that a supervisor armed with funding has more chance attracting a bright student when he finds one than without funding.But funding is only one aspect of the programme. As implied above, relevance to the research themes of our lab is important, and our aim is that all student are co-supervised by one of our researchers. Internships allow the students, should they decide to apply, to work full time along side one of our researchers in Cambridge.Finally, to support the creation of a community we have been running an annual research summer schools for the students.Started in 2004102 Scholars in total (about 20 new Scholars a year)Co-supervision: 77% Interdisciplinary research: 35%Internship: 23% [2004-2006 Scholars]Publications:Phys Rev Let, Phys.

Some researchRelevant to regionRelevant to theme...Research strategically relevant to MSRC. External partners do complementary work. Numerous project engagements in the area. “Internal PI at MSRC model” is very successful. About 20 projects in the region, some running down, some in no cost extensions, some monitored by us, some managed by us, plus theme projects from Redmond. About 120 for ER globally.
