Develop your career by The Future Leaders Fellowship Scheme

The Future Leaders Fellowships can help fund your most talented innovators.

The next round of the Future Leaders Fellowships scheme is now open. The scheme aims to help the next generation of tech entrepreneurs, business leaders, innovators and researchers get the support they need to develop their careers.

Using this scheme, your business could:

·     attract or retain an individual with outstanding leadership potential to lead a challenging innovation or research project.

·     access funding to cover salaries and critical operational costs supporting the Fellow (up to £1.2m over 4 years).

·     benefit from flexible public funding to support innovation programmes, with the option to work on a portfolio of projects and the flexibility to change direction to                      meet business requirements.

·     continue training and developing your Fellow in other business activities alongside the Fellowship using the new ‘reduced hours’ option.
