We enable researchers to explore the commercial potential of their research, to acquire business skills to develop it, and to take it towards commercialisation.


  • Follow-on Funding: Follow-on Funding is intended to provide financial support at the very early or pre-seed stage of turning research outputs into a commercial proposition
  • RSE/STFC Enterprise Fellowships: The STFC and the Royal Society of Edinburgh offer support for STFC funded scientists who want to develop a business idea based on STFC funded research
  • Impact Acceleration Account: STFC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) provides flexible funding directly to the research organisation’s Knowledge Exchange / Technology Transfer Office to support STFC-funded academics to take their ideas towards commercialisation
  • UK Innovation & Science Seed Fund
