The next round of the Future Leaders Fellowships scheme is now open. Supported by Innovate UK, the Future Leaders Fellowships provide funding and support to businesses looking to turn high-impact research and innovation into reality.

Through this scheme, businesses could:

  • Receive funding of up to £1.5 million over four years
  • Attract or retain a talented innovator with untapped potential
  • Develop a significant new or enhanced research or innovation capability
  • Build networks and collaborate with other organisations

For this year, Innovate UK has introduced a Reduced Hours Fellowship for additional flexibility. Applicants can spend between 60 to 100 percent of their working time on this award, and up to 40 percent of their time focused on other activities within the business.

For all the details on what’s involved, how to apply as well as hearing from current future leaders, visit the Future Leaders Fellowships web pages.
