Business Engagement

Business Engagement with NINE DTP

Engaging with businesses is important to the NINE DTP students because of the opportunities available to them including collaborative projects, placements or internships, as well as opportunities for students to take overseas institutional visits.

Research in Practice

Research in Practice (RiP) provides flexibility to compliment and contribute to research, providing a fruitful opportunity for knowledge exchange and personal and professional development.

An essential element of RiP will be the Development Needs Analysis (DNA), which is fundamental to achieving flexible and responsive doctoral training and a more bespoke student experience to allow for interests and career options to be fully explored.

Experts across industry, business and civil society will be contributing towards Research in Practice training and provides students with a unique opportunity to establish strong networks with organisations.
