The UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship scheme (FLF) aims to support early career researchers and innovators with outstanding potential based in UK universities, registered businesses, and other research and user organisations.
It is hoped that the support provided will enable the fellow to establish their research and/or innovation independence.
The scheme, which is designed to tackle difficult and novel challenges, provides up to seven years of funding, for at least 550 early-career researchers and innovators
The call for applications for the third round of fellowships is now open.
The deadline for full proposals is 30 May 2019. The mandatory outline stage closes on 2 May 2019.
