Royal Society Short Industry Fellowships
Posted on 17/05/2018
The Royal Society has expanded its industry fellowship programme this year, to include Short Industry Fellowships of 3-6 months. This new scheme will enable scientists employed in industry or academia to have shorter, more dynamic engagements between academia and industry, working on a mutually beneficial and collaborative project.
Collaborations between academia and early-stage companies are particularly encouraged. It is anticipated that the personal and corporate links established by the fellow between the two sectors in the UK will seed longer-term collaborations and contribute to their long-term future development.
The fellowship provides opportunities for an academic scientist to work on a collaborative project with industry, or a scientist employed in industry to work on a collaborative project with a university department or not-for-profit research organisation.
