Material Social Futures PhDs

In the first instance, this initiative is supported by a £1.55M investment from the Leverhulme Trust and Lancaster University in The Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship Programme that will facilitate the development of this new PhD over the next seven years (2018-2025).

The The Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarship Programme will provide a new cadre of 21 PhDs, equipped with a “tool kit” of methods that can be applied within their own research and be applied to “think through” the likely consequences of their research.  This toolkit will involve the analysis and application of the cradle-to-cradle (c2c) philosophy, circular economy, eco-innovation etc, married to intensive training in communication techniques– so that PhDs are better equipped to talk to boards, government, regulators and legislators and policy makers.

Initial Scholarships are being awarded in:
