Education, Training and Careers Committee

The Committee provides advice to Science Board and the executive on strategy, policies and programme balance for all aspects of education and training relevant to the STFC core programme including studentships, fellowships, equality issues and career development of early career researchers. The Committee oversees the allocation of STFC Doctoral Training Partnerships, the peer review and award of fellowships and Industrial CASE studentships and the quality of training provided by these programmes. The Committee meets three times a year and members usually serve on the Fellowships panel at some point during their term.
