The Royal Society Industry Fellowship and Royal Society Entrepreneur in Residence schemes are currently open for applications.
The Industry Fellowship is a great opportunity for scientist to work on a collaborative project with an academic organisation and an industry partner. The secondment can be held for up to 4 years part time. The scheme provides the applicant’s basic salary and up to £8000 research expenses. Details of how to apply can be found in the Industry Fellowship scheme notes. For a more dynamic engagement between academia and industry, please refer to our Short Industry Fellowships, which opens on 3 September 2019. We encourage applications involving small companies and/or early stage companies provided they have a well-established research team and facilities.
The Royal Society Entrepreneur in Residence scheme provides opportunities for enthusiastic, highly experienced industrial scientists and entrepreneurs to spend one day a week over two years at a university developing a bespoke project to:
- expose university staff and students to state-of-the-art industrial research and development, and the scientific challenges faced by industry
- provide support and expert advice aimed at promoting innovation and the translation of research by universities
- grow confidence in and understanding of business and entrepreneurship among staff and students
- provide career recognition to the award holders, and support their professional development
The scheme provides a contribution to the basic salary for the EiR and towards travel and project costs.
