The scheme is open to researchers and innovators from across business, universities, and other organisations and from around the world.

This scheme is looking for early career researchers and innovators who are either:

​For Round 7 we are running an internal process at BU to ensure we support and encourage submissions from the highest standard of candidates. For this round, UKRI have capped the number of submissions per institution and BU is capped at a maximum of 3.

The focus is to ensure candidates are eligible and have a high chance of success, providing them with comprehensive advice and support, to develop a high-quality programme of research and proposal for submission. Applications are welcome from internal academics (both as prospective fellows and/or mentors of prospective fellows) and external academics to be hosted by BU.

Prospective applicants should complete an Expression of Interest and send to Research Development by 12pm on 19th July 2022. A panel of all DDRPPs will review each EoI and selected applicants will be notified by end of day 28th July 2022.

Selected applicants will then be supported to progress with their application and receive internal and external support as required.

A briefing on this call will be held on 29th June 2022, including an overview of the scheme and a Q&A session. Please contact apekalski@bournemouth.ac.uk if you do not already have the briefing invite in your diary.
