The Royal Society‘s Entrepreneur in Residence (EiR) scheme aims to increase the knowledge and awareness in UK universities of cutting-edge industrial science, research, and innovation in all areas of the life and physical sciences, including engineering, but excluding clinical medicine. Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK for the duration of the award. The scheme provides opportunities for enthusiastic, highly experienced industrial scientists and entrepreneurs to spend one day a week at a university developing a bespoke project to:

  • expose university staff and students to state-of-the-art industrial research and development, and the scientific challenges faced by industry
  • provide support and expert advice aimed at promoting innovation and the translation of research by universities
  • grow confidence in and understanding of business and entrepreneurship among staff and students
  • provide career recognition to the award holders, and support their professional development

The funding provides up to 25,000 GBP per year over 2 years, for a contribution to the basic salary for the EiR and towards travel and project costs.

Applications close on September 18, 2024.
