About this funding opportunity and the UKRI Innovation Scholars programme

This secondment opportunity went live on 11 January and will close on 26 May 2022.

It is part of UKRI Innovation Scholars programme.

The main objectives of the programme are to:

  • increase porosity between academia and other sectors
  • enhance skills and careers of individuals in research and innovation
  • intensify knowledge exchange resulting in innovative outputs
  • add value to the UK economy.

Previously, UKRI Innovation Scholars funding opportunities for secondments were offered to applicants with an interest in biomedical and health sciences.

We are pleased to promote this pilot opportunity, funded by AHRC, with a focus on architecture and design.
