The scheme is open to researchers at all career stages based in the UK, and its objectives include supporting collaborative research between academia and industry, enhancing knowledge exchange, and promoting the value of science. The Industry Fellowship aims to support the career development of the researcher and their team, and to encourage the establishment of collaborative links between academic and industrial organizations, which may lead to long-term collaborations.
The Royal Society is a learned society based in the United Kingdom that was founded in 1660. It is one of the oldest and most prestigious scientific organizations in the world. The Society's mission is to recognize, promote, and support excellence in science, and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
The Royal Society has played a significant role in the development of modern science, and many of the world's most renowned scientists have been Fellows of the Society, including Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, and Stephen Hawking. Today, the Society has around 1,700 Fellows and Foreign Members from across the globe, who are elected for their outstanding contributions to science.
