BBSRC seek proposals for the RSE scheme

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is currently seeking proposals to the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) Enterprise Fellowship scheme which supports researchers who wish to play a key role in the commercialisation of their research.

RSE Enterprise Fellowships provide a salary, mentoring and formal business training, allowing the Enterprise Fellow to focus solely on developing their business over a 12-month period.

A part-time option is available for BBSRC funded RSE Enterprise Fellowships; applications for a part-time fellowship will be approved dependent on circumstances. Please see the RSE Application Guidelines document on the RSE website for more details.

BBSRC funded RSE Enterprise Fellowships are available to academic staff, research staff and postgraduates with relevant experience who are employed by a UK Higher Education establishment or BBSRC Strategically Funded Institute. Please see the Terms and Conditions document on the RSE website for more detail.

RSE Enterprise Fellowships are also supported in this funding round by Scottish Enterprise, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and QuantIC. More details on these programmes are available on the RSE website.

The current closing date for applications is 1 November 2017 at 5pm. Please visit or contact Anne Fraser for further information.
