The Royal Society Industry Fellowship scheme enhances knowledge exchange between industry and academia in the UK by providing opportunities for individual scientists to work on collaborative projects. It has been instrumental in helping leading scientists form successful, long-term collaborations between universities and businesses, providing them the time and support to work in both sectors.
These case studies describe the experiences of ten Industry Fellows, the benefits the fellowship has had on their career and their research, and also on the universities and companies they have worked for. We hope their stories will encourage others to apply for the scheme and follow a similar path to achieve innovation through collaboration.
