The STFC, along with the RSE (Royal Society of Edinburgh), offer support for STFC funded scientists who want to develop a business idea based on STFC funded research. The fellowship gives one year’s salary and business training, to the Enterprise Fellow – the aim being to give someone the time and skills to set up a viable business as a result of the STFC science programme.

Enterprise Fellowships are designed to encourage exploitation of the STFC research programme. Applications may be submitted on any subject provided that the original research or technological developments have their origin as part of a programme largely funded by STFC, or in the case of nuclear physics programme previously funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Agencies Involved: Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE)
