The 2015 round is currently closed for applications. The new round will be opened in July 2016, and the below information is for reference purposes only of how the scheme was run last year.

Enterprise Fellowships provide funding and support to outstanding entrepreneurial engineering researchers, working at a UK university at postdoc level or above, to enable them to develop a spin-out business around their technological idea. 

Enterprise Fellows receive up to £35,000 for a year of salary support and an additional £25,000 for continued development of the innovation and associated spin-out company.

Enterprise Fellows are also invited to join the Academy’s Enterprise Hub where they receive ongoing support and business mentoring from the Academy’s Fellowship, which includes some of the UK’s most successful technology entrepreneurs and business leaders.
