High Value Manufacturing Catapult fellowships aim to strengthen relations between academics and manufacturers, and accelerate the transition of research from the laboratory to industry.

Funded by EPSRC and coordinated by the University of Sheffield AMRC, the fellowship programme aims to increase academic involvement in the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. Academic fellows will carry out research at one or more of the seven centres that form the HVM Catapult, a national network backed by Innovate UK.

The fellowships will enable academic staff to spend six-month research visits, spread over one to four years, in one or more of the HVM Catapult centres. The projects must be aligned to work previously funded by EPSRC.  Applications are encouraged in the field of knowledge management.

EPSRC and Innovate UK are now inviting proposals for the third round of fellowships, with a closing date of 5.00 pm on Friday 28 August 2015. For more information, download the call and guidance and application form from the menu to the right.
