EPSRC IAA Knowledge Transfer Fellowships
Knowledge Transfer Fellowships
Knowledge Transfer Fellowships will aim to transfer knowledge and expertise linked to EPSRC research between the University and a partner company. The Fellowship will fund a researcher or member of academic staff to undertake a 3-12 month secondment to a business or other partner organisation. Fellowships are also open to company employees to spend time working in a University department to facilitate knowledge transfer.
The exchange of people between industry and academia creates a two-way flow of knowledge and expertise, allowing both partners to benefit from new perspectives and insights. Researchers can gain great career benefit from spending time in industry to understand the different needs and culture of commercial organisations, making useful links and contacts for the future. Potential applicants are advised to consult the Secondments – Lessons from Practice guide.
Closing dates for applications: 30 October 2020 and 29 January 2021. Projects must be completed by 31 March 2022.
