NERC has agreed to support up to five new Enterprise Fellowships to boost the development of new businesses from investments in environmental research.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) Enterprise Fellowship scheme provides support to researchers and innovators who have promising business ideas.
The programme, delivered by the RSE with support from BBSRC, NERC, STFC and Scottish Enterprise, allows fellows to focus solely on developing their business idea. They receive one year’s salary, expert business training, business development funding and access to mentors from a pool of successful individuals in the commercial community.
The next call for applications is now open, closing on 9 November 2016.
More information, including eligibility and how to apply, is available on the RSE website.
