Applications should be submitted through the Je-S system.
When submitting an outline proposal, please select:
- Council: STFC
- Document type: Fellowship proposal
- Scheme: KEC Fellowship
- Call/type/mode: KEC Fellowship Open Call
The application should consist of:
- Je-S pro forma
- six-page case for support (mandatory)
- letter of support from Technology Transfer Office(s) (mandatory)
- letter of support from any relevant heads of department (mandatory).
Letters of support from any project partners is mandatory (if relevant), and letters of support from end users/other organisations are heavily encouraged
The case for support should be no longer than six pages and conform to the font and margin guidelines in the Je-S helptext. Applications will be rejected by the office for non‐compliance. Applications should address the following headings:
What is the STFC funded research at the host university that will form the basis of the knowledge exchange and commercialisation activities for the fellow? What impact has been previously achieved from STFC-funded research? Please ensure all STFC funded areas are included.
Objectives of the fellowship
What is the overall aim of the fellowship? What are the objectives, key performance indicators and measures of success? Identify the expected outputs during this fellowship. There should also be a review of the current portfolio of technologies, skills and intellectual property that the host university will bring to the fellowship programme.
Management and development
Detail the arrangements for supervising the fellow, including mentoring, guidance and ensuring professional development of the fellow. This should clearly explain how the fellow will be embedded in both the academic department and in the teams responsible for knowledge exchange and commercialisation activities at the university.
Include the job specification that will be used for recruitment and selection of the fellow with a focus on experience relevant to a knowledge exchange position within a community of STFC-funded researchers.
State the full cost of the project (fEC) and, if relevant, those of any collaborating universities, and provide justification for them. STFC can reduce resource requests if they feel there is insufficient justification.
