  • Innovation Fellowships: are targeted at talented early career researchers (postdoctoral researchers, and those early in their career who are equivalent to BBSRC David Phillips Fellows or equivalent from industry) who have the potential to be the next generation of leaders within UK academic and industrial research.

It is intended to support the exchange of personnel, perspectives and knowledge, skills and expertise between the academic and industrial sectors.
