The Royal Society’s Entrepreneur in Residence scheme has just opened for a second call with a deadline of 29 November 2018. The scheme aims to increase the knowledge and awareness in UK Universities of cutting edge industrial science, research and innovation.

The scheme provides opportunities for outstanding industrial scientists and entrepreneurs to spend time working in a University to:

  • expose university staff and students to state-of-the-art industrial research and development, and the scientific challenges faced by industry;
  • provide support and expert advice aimed at promoting innovation and the translation of research by Universities;
  • grow confidence in and understanding of business and entrepreneurship among staff and students;
  • provide career recognition to the award holders, and support their professional development.

More information is on the Royal Society webpage, where the application can be submitted.
