Equity in Doctoral Education through Partnership and Innovation (EDEPI)

EDEPI aims to  increase the participation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups in doctoral education.

About EDEPI

There is a concern with equity in Doctoral education in the United Kingdom. PhD researchers in the United Kingdom do not reflect the broader population, nor do they represent the population of first-degree graduates from which they are drawn. As a result, crucial voices aren't heard, and the research sector misses out on tremendous chances for problem-solving creativity.

EDEPI aims to resolve this equity problem and increase the participation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups in doctoral education. It is one of 13 projects funded by Research England and the Office for Students. Our project is divided into three work packages (WP) led by colleagues from across the consortium partners.
