Enterprise Fellowships awarded to support research commercialisation
BBSRC have funded two new Enterprise Fellowships to boost the development of new businesses from research investments.
The programme, delivered by the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) with support from BBSRC, Scottish Enterprise and STFC, allows fellows to focus solely on developing their business. They receive one year’s salary, expert business training, business development funding and access to mentors from a pool of RSE business fellows and other successful individuals in the commercial community.
In the most recent rounds of funding, the Royal Society of Edinburgh has awarded 11 new Enterprise Fellowships. Of these eleven Dr Brian Miller, Heriot-Watt University and Mr Daniel Stabler, Newcastle University have been funded by BBSRC.
The programme has helped fellows to take up key posts in some of the UK's exciting new start-up companies. Many of these companies have shown high growth potential and helped academics to further develop the impact of BBSRC-funded research such as C4X Discovery,Reinnervate and Clyde Biosciences.
The next call for applications is now open, closing on 4 May 2016.
