Central England NERC Training Alliance

The Central England NERC Training Alliance (CENTA)

CENTA is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.

CENTA encompasses research activities within three broad themes:

  • Climate & Environmental Sustainability
  • Organisms & Ecosystems
  • Dynamic Earth

These themes cut across about 20 academic departments, within the 6 universities, as well as the 4 NERC research organisations involved. This reflects both the multidisciplinary nature and excellence of our research and the high numbers of researchers in central England who span the breadth of the NERC remit. A critical mass of researchers in close geographic proximity is one of our great strength. It facilitates shared access to facilities and training and helps to build a strong cohort identity. Training in CENTA2 is supported systematically by end-users from industry to non-governmental organisations and governmental agencies.
