NERC invites proposals to develop an online training portal offering training in data management relevant to its remit and aligned with the objectives of the Industrial Strategy.

This online portal will support training for UK-based environmental science PhD students, with a focus on the need and 'how to' of engaging with end-users, as well as enhancing students' ability to present data and write in a way that is appropriate to end-user needs; translating environmental science into addressing business/policy challenges. It is expected that the training portal will also support training in the key principles of data management to underpin the training identified above.

One award will be supported through this call and the successful applicant will be awarded two years' funding to develop, launch and promote the portal. It is expected the training portal will remain accessible for a minimum of five years from its launch in January 2018.

There is a total budget of £212,500 available for this scheme.

This opportunity is open to organisations eligible for NERC managed-mode research grant funding.
