Call status: Open
Outline proposal deadline: 2 April 2020


Outline proposals are invited for Turing Artificial Intelligence World-Leading Researcher Fellowships. Up to £18 million is available to fund a small number of fellows for up to five years starting by 1 April 2021. EPSRC, on behalf of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), is delivering this substantive phase of the Turing Artificial Intelligence (AI) Fellowships, working in partnership with the Alan Turing Institute, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Office for Artificial Intelligence.

This programme will invest in the retention and international recruitment of a small number of world-leading AI researchers to build new capability and capacity in the UK, contributing to the development of a diverse and sustainable UK AI research ecosystem.

Through this strategic investment we are seeking to support world-leading researchers who will undertake ambitious and novel research with a primary focus on tackling the methodological and theoretical challenges in AI, which may be driven by real world applications. This research should show significant novelty in the development of AI technologies and should go beyond applying established AI approaches within applications.
