The STARS legacy assured
STARS CDT has been successful in obtaining a NERC flexible translation award to fund work to enhance and prolong the impact of the STARS CDT on soil science research. The CDT, which initially received funding for three cohorts of PhD students, had already increased its reach by gaining a NERC National Productivity Investment Fund award, adding a further eight studentships to the original cohorts. This new, additional funding will ensure a dynamic and effective legacy can be built to serve the soil science community going forward, after the last STARS PhD students graduate. This is great news for the future of soil science.
