UKRI: Future Leaders Fellowships

Businesses of any size, in any sector across the UK, can host a fellowship in order to significantly enhance the career potential of a highly talented employee, through the implementation of a challenging and strategically important research or innovation project within the business.

A business may host a Future Leaders Fellowship independently, to carry out a self-contained program of R&D and develop a world class innovator.

Projects led by the Future Leaders Fellow can build significant new or enhanced capabilities which scale and grow the business, leading to a more competitive position within the marketplace and the reputation as an innovative employer for highly skilled individuals.

Alternatively, businesses may wish to engage and collaborate with academically hosted Future Leaders Fellowships, opening access for the business to basic or applied research for the development of new products, processes, business models and market opportunities.

A business hosted fellow might choose to build collaborative relationships with other businesses and/or academic researchers, thus enhancing their network (and that of the business host) and building an effective pipeline for new ideas, employees and partnerships.

Future Leaders Fellowships allow early career researchers and innovators from eligible UK businesses to develop their leadership potential through challenging innovation or research projects:

  • Funding of up to £1.2 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)

Expected closing dates for future rounds:

  • Round 5: Jun 2020 (tbc)
