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.
