The INTREPID Forensics programme provided ten funded PhD opportunities for early stage researchers to pursue innovative research degrees focusing on areas applicable to the forensic sciences. The research projects were all based at the University of Leicester, and were rooted in a wide range of disciplines including genetics, criminology, chemistry, psychology, engineering, maths, physics and medicine. Each of the researchers were supervised by experts in these fields during their research, and they also completed a core forensic skills training programme designed and delivered by academics and industry partners. In addition, each researcher completed a research secondment at various partner institutions throughout Europe.
The United Kingdom, and the University of Leicester in particular, has a strong history of world class forensic research and innovation and this innovative doctoral programme attracted high quality early stage researchers to investigate forensic technologies with the potential to impact crime across Europe and globally.
