Global Innovation FellowshipsCarnegie Endowment For International Peace British Academy Global Innovation Fellowships (Fully-Funded)

The Global Innovation Fellowships aim to provide opportunities for early- and mid-career researchers from the humanities and social sciences based in the UK to develop their skills, networks, and careers in the creative and cultural, public, private, and policy sectors to address challenges that require innovative approaches and solutions. Researchers in the SHAPE community will be supported by the Global Innovation Fellowships to establish new and deeper linkages beyond academia, enabling knowledge mobilization and translation as well as individual skill development.

The International Science Partnerships Fund of the United Kingdom Government is funding this program. The £119 million International Science Partnerships Fund is intended to unlock potential and promote prosperity. It places research and innovation at the core of the UK’s international connections, enabling UK researchers and innovators to collaborate with peers worldwide on the major issues of our day. It is overseen by the Department of Science, Innovation, and Technology. A coalition of the UK’s leading research and innovation agencies will deliver the project.
