How to Invest
What can I expect when I contact you?
When you first contact us, you’ll speak with our dedicated business manager. They’ll speak with you about the medical imaging field you are interested in, if you already have any specific project ideals in mind or research supervisors that you would like to work with from our existing list. Following that discussion, our business manager will then contact either those potential supervisors and clinicians you have identified or ones from the CDT whose field of expertise most closely matches the area you are interested in and arrange a meeting. They’ll also draw up a rough draft of the project(s) that were discussed.
During the meeting, you’ll be able to better develop the project in conjunction with the supervisors. We ensure that the project is pushing the medical imaging sector forward to deliver high quality and the latest results as well as addressing your company’s needs. We also ask that an industry supervisor is named. This person would be a point of contact for the future student.
Once we have a proposal and contract negotiation is underway, which we will discuss on a case by case basis to ensure that terms and IP arrangements are agreeable for both parties, we will widely advertise your project with spotlights to ensure we get the best applicants. After a vigorous initial interview process for suitability by our CDT panel, we then invite our partners to meet the shortlisted candidates if they wish, to agree on the successful candidate for the project.
