Faraday Institution – Entrepreneurial Fellowships

Closing Date: –

Fellowships for UK researchers who wish to spin-out businesses based on technology from or related to the scope of the Faraday Institution.

The Faraday Institution was established in 2017 as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – Faraday Battery Challenge. The Institution is the UK’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage science and technology, supporting research, training, and analysis.

The Faraday Institution’s Entrepreneurial Fellowships are designed to facilitate the creation of new business opportunities that have emerged from Faraday Institution research programmes or other closely related activities. Support is available to members of research teams that have made progress on a technology to accelerate its commercialisation.

The fellowship will provide seed funding, business support and mentoring to maximise the potential of success and accelerate the spin-out process. The Faraday Institution will work closely with other technology transfer offices and funders throughout the period of the Fellowship.

Fellowships are available between three months and a year. The Institution expects to award approximately five Fellowships per year but this will be reviewed in light of demand.
