The Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellowships programme is now open for 2019/20 candidates. The awards are designed to support innovative, creative, entrepreneurial exceptional engineers who want to develop further.
The programme is built around equipping the awardees with the skills, confidence and experience develop their innovative ideas.
There are fellowships to support researchers wishing to spin out a company from a university or research institute, recent graduates who want to create a company, and international PhD students based in the UK who want to spin out or startup.
Each Fellowship provides up to £60,000 equity-free funding as well as a tailored mentoring and training regime; help with PR, marketing and promotion; and access to The Royal Academy of Engineerings drop-in workspace in central London.
To date the academy has provided training, mentoring and £4.5 million seed funding to 73 Enterprise Fellows (‘Hub Members’).
