Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

The Fusion CDT strives to create a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning and research environment for students and staff across all partner universities, institutes and companies. We have support in place for students with disabilities and/or caring responsibilities and also offer part-time study options where this is compatable with the project.
