We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

3.2 Other Research Programmes

STFC joint funds research through programmes operated by other funding bodies e.g.

  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships - which encourage technology transfer partnerships between universities and industry. They place associates (graduate and postdoctoral) in a company to work on a project that is a key part of the company's business development strategy. KTPs are sponsored by a variety of organisations and Research Councils and are managed by Innovate UK.
  • RSE/STFC Enterprise Fellowships - 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.
