Industry Sprints dedicate small multidisciplinary teams of researchers to solve a commercially relevant research opportunity identified from within the research programme and prioritised by an industrial partner. Over a period of 6 to 18 months, researchers work closely on the challenge, meeting frequently to review progress and hone plans.
Sprints give early career researchers an opportunity to lead a focused team across multiple institutions, and to connect with leaders from industry and academia.
Application closing dates are January 31st, April 30th, July 31st and October 31st of each year.
