will not be processed.
All engineering departments in
the UK Higher Education institutions are eligible to
apply. Whilst the Fellowships are intended to favour
aspects of engineering and technology, the assessment
panel will also give sympathetic consideration to
proposals from related disciplines (e.g. within the
generality of ICT and materials) where a convincing
case for support is made. Applications from commercial centres of
excellence are not accepted.
Applications with visitors
from overseas academic centres of excellence in
engineering (including those from governmental
research organisations) are accepted. Visitors from
commercial centres of excellence are not
eligible for this scheme.
Deadline for Applications
There are two rounds of
applications each year. The deadline for the submission of the
first round of applications is 12 June 2013. The
deadline for the second round of applications will be the
