Innovation Scholars secondments
UKRI invites applications for individuals from any discipline wishing to spend up to 36 months (full or part time) on secondment in the biomedical sciences sector.
Proposals can come from any discipline but either the seconding or host organisation must be a business within the biomedical sciences sector (such as pharmaceutical, biotech, devices, biomedical engineering or diagnostics).
The objectives of the call are to:
- create porosity between sectors by enabling career mobility
- boost the skills, knowledge and career development of people
- intensify knowledge exchange between the biomedical industry and academia
- add value to the Biomedical Sciences sector and the UK economy by increasing productivity
This people-focused competition will achieve its objectives by supporting secondments to fund any activity that enhances the skills of, or provides career development for, the secondee and benefits the organisations involved. The secondee must work on an activity that works towards solving challenges within the secondment (host) environment.
