The 2022 Doctoral Studies call now open, closing on the last day of February 2022. RADMA has been supporting research in R&D Management for over 40 years.
The award provides up to three years funding to talented prospective or mid-study PhD students, offering them the opportunity to concentrate on their research for the period of the award. The expectation is that candidates will have a Masters degree in a relevant field or an excellent first degree or equivalent.
Awards will be granted to and administered through the institution, not individual candidates. The award will cover costs related to fees and specified living expenses up to a maximum of £20,109 per academic year (pro-rata for part-time students; partial funding is a possibility) and conditional upon the receipt of acceptable annual progress reports.

- Management and exploitation of scientific and technological activity within firms and public bodies
- Determinants of organisation-level performance in research, development, product design and innovation
- The interaction of organisation-wide processes such as strategy formulation and human resources with R&D
- The relationship between organisation-level activities and performance, and national and regional innovation systems or technology, science and industrial policies
