This scheme intends to grow the strong supply of talented individuals needed to ensure that UK research and innovation continues to be world class. These Fellowships support applicants from diverse career paths, including those returning from a career break or following time in other roles.

  • Foster new research and innovation career paths including those at the academic/business and interdisciplinary boundaries, as well as facilitate movement of people between sectors
  • Provide sustained funding and resources for the best early career researchers and innovators
  • Provide long-term, flexible funding to tackle difficult and novel challenges, and support adventurous, ambitious programmes.

Who can apply?

This UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) scheme will support early career researchers and innovators with outstanding potential in universities, UK registered businesses, and other research and user environments including research councils’ institutes and laboratories.
