Innovation Scholars secondments in design

The objectives of this Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) investment are to:

  • enable mobility between sectors
  • boost the skills, knowledge, networking opportunities and therefore career development of secondees
  • intensify knowledge exchange between different sectors, resulting in innovative outputs
  • add value to the design sector and the UK economy

This investment is part of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Innovation Scholars programme.

The AHRC-funded opportunity had two rounds, the first in 2022 and the second between 2023 and April 2024.

Both have been focused on design and how research and innovation in design can help tackle contemporary challenges within research areas such as wellbeing and health, place-making and supporting communities, and our environment (natural and built).

We funded 11 secondees through the first round:
