Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarships (KESS) is a major European Convergence programme led by Bangor University on behalf of the HE sector in Wales. Benefiting from European Social Funds (ESF), KESS will support collaborative research projects (Research Masters and PhD) with external partners based in the Convergence area of Wales (West Wales and the Valleys).  KESS will run from 2009 until 2014 and will provide 400+ PhD and Masters places.

Research Masters elements are integrated with a high-level skills training programme, leading to a Postgraduate Skills Development Award.
