Future Leader Fellowships

UK Research and Innovation works in partnership with universities, research organisations, businesses, charities, and government to create the best possible environment for research and innovation to flourish. 

Future Leaders Fellowships will grow the strong supply of talented individuals needed to ensure a vibrant environment for research and innovation in the UK. The scheme is open to researchers and innovators from across business, universities, and other organisations. It offers: 

  • Funding of up to £1.5 million over a four year period, but with considerable flexibility available. Funding will be provided in line with prevailing state aid guidelines.
  • The ability to attract in individual, or develop an existing employee, who will help create innovative solutions for their business. This could include bringing the most talented international innovators to work in their business in the UK.
  • A new Reduced Hours Fellowship, in which fellows are able to spend up to 40 percent of their time focused on other activities within the business in order to enhance their career.
  • The option to collaborate with other organisations (business, academic, public and third sector)

Investment of up to £1.5 million over four years, with the ability to extend to up to seven years, will enable the next generation to benefit from outstanding support to develop their careers, and to work on difficult and novel challenges.

The application process requires registration to receive further information and bid writing support, so it is important that you register now to be able to apply later.
