The 2023 British Academy Global Innovation Fellowships
The 2023 British Academy Global Innovation Fellowships are now accepting applications. These fellowships are planned to empower the next generation of global innovators to create solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges. This programme is supported under the UK Government’s International Science Partnerships Fund. The £119m International Science Partnerships Fund is organized to promote potential and foster prosperity. It puts research and innovation at the heart of the UK’s international relationships, supporting UK researchers and innovators to work with peers around the world on the major themes of our time. It’s managed by the Department for Science, Innovation & Technology. Delivered by a consortium of the UK’s leading research and innovation bodies.
This is a new programme for the British Academy and in this pilot phase, we are pleased to be offering opportunities for Global Innovation Fellowship award holders to embed themselves and be based in the offices of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Applications are invited in any of the following five areas:
- Sustainability, Climate, and Geopolitics.
- Technology and International Affairs.
- Democracy, Conflict & Governance.
- Global Order and Institutions.
- Nuclear Policy.
The purpose of the Global Innovation Fellowships is to offer opportunities to UK-based early- and mid-career researchers from across the humanities and social sciences to develop their skills, networks, and careers in the creative and cultural, public, private, and policy sectors to tackle challenges that need innovative approaches and solutions. Through the Global Innovation Fellowships, researchers in the SHAPE community will be supported to create new and deeper links beyond academia, so enabling knowledge mobilization and translation, as well as individual skills development.
Level of Award: The Academy is offering up to three one-year fellowships hosted in Carnegie’s offices in the USA (Washington DC or California). These are offered as awards for up to £150,000 for 12 months in duration (with Full Economic Costing at 80%).
