Welcome to C-DICE, the Centre for Postdoctoral Development in Infrastructure Cities and Energy. C-DICE is a world-class postdoctoral development programme which leverages the capability of 18 leading research-intensive UK universities.

C-DICE aims to build and sustain the advanced skills base required to create a pipeline of world-class talent for the Infrastructure, Cities and Energy (IC&E) sectors, and accelerate progress towards a net-zero society by 2050.
