By awarding Entrepreneurial Fellowships the Faraday Institution provides start-ups in the area of energy storage technologies with financial and business support to drive battery innovation.
The Faraday Institution Entrepreneurial Fellowship programme supports researchers across the UK looking to create new businesses and commercialise battery technologies. These fellowships have been set up to facilitate the creation of new business opportunities that have emerged from Faraday Institution research programmes and elsewhere from the broader UK battery research community. The programme provides seed funding, business support and mentoring to maximise the potential of success and accelerate the spin-out process.
The Faraday Institution expects to award approximately five Fellowships per year with funding available in the range of £50,000 to £100,000. Applications can be made at any time.
