We are pleased to announce that our Head of Research, Dr Brett Drury, has won the prestigious Leaders in Innovation Fellowship: https://www.raeng.org.uk/grants-and-prizes/international-research-and-collaborations/newton-fund-programmes/leaders-in-innovation-fellowships, which is awarded by the Royal Academy of Engineers. This fellowship will see Brett attending an intensive course hosted in London which is intended to assist Brett in the international commercialization of his research.
Working with a select number of partner countries, the primary objective of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Leaders in Innovation Fellowships (LIF) programme is to build the capacity of researchers for entrepreneurship and commercialisation of their research. More broadly, the programme creates international networks of innovators and technology entrepreneurs.
As the UK’s national academy for engineering and technology, the Royal Academy of Engineering brings together the most talented and successful engineers to advance and promote excellence in engineering for the benefit of society (https://www.raeng.org.uk/about-us/what-we-do).
