Knowledge Exchange Fellowships

Funding available up to £10k per fellowship.

The aim of the Knowledge Exchange Fellowship scheme is to enhance co-produced long term/sustainable knowledge exchange interactions between external organisations and the University through staff mobility.

The scheme provides academic staff with an opportunity to work with a non-academic partner at their site or for a non-academic partner to work on a project at the University (or a mixed approach) for up to 12 months on either a full or part time basis.  For more details of each approach please refer to the application guidance document.

External partners may include industry, business, public sector/government organisations or third sector organisations. We are keen to strategically support:

  • Closer third sector collaboration to build capacity to utilise research, including through LeedsACTS!, and key national and international charitable organisations.
  • Enhanced collaboration with private sector organisations, to increase mutual understanding of ways of working and to support the commercialisation agenda.

For more details, please refer to the IAA application guidance document.
