To apply to the FLF scheme, the organisation must be eligible to receive Research Council funding or be a UK based business or Catapult eligible to receive Innovate UK funding. (Further information on organisations eligible to receive funding) Applicants from both the UK and elsewhere are welcome to apply for a fellowship supported by a UK host organisation. Future Leaders Fellowships support applicants from diverse career paths, including those returning from a career break or following time in other roles. We also encourage applications from those wishing to work part-time. Our assessors will take into account time spent outside an active research or innovation environment, whether through career breaks, flexible working or time spent working in other roles. This is a single scheme which covers the entire UK Research and Innovation remit, with no ringfenced budgets for specific areas and no barriers to interdisciplinary or cross-sector research.
