Micro-hydro turbine under test at the University of Southampton

This micro-hydro project was a collaboration between industrial and academic partners across Europe

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems is supported by over forty companies and organizations ranging in size from SMEs to multinationals, and from countries as diverse as the USA, China and Brazil.

The involvement of our industrial and academic partners is key for the CDT in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems. All students are exposed to real-world problems originating from our partners and many of our students will pursue PhD research jointly with industry.
