Max-CROP, Max-imising the potential of CROP researchers


European Framework 7 European Industrial Doctorate PhD training programme

This four year programme is a partnership between NIAB Trading Ltd and the University of Wageningen, The Netherlands


Max-CROP supports the attainment of a PhD for five early career stage researchers in areas of science that impact on crop production.

Max-CROP aims to maximise the potential of the next-generation of crop researchers, producing individuals that understand the problems facing the agricultural industry, including crop breeding, agronomy and production, but able to apply advanced scientific understanding and modern technologies to solve these problems.

Max-CROP will make careers in agriculture an attractive choice for a new generation of researchers, opening up new opportunities and improving career prospects.
