This scheme supports early career researchers and innovators with outstanding potential in universities, UK registered businesses, and other research and user environments, including research councils, institutes, and laboratories. Applicants are expected to be exceptional researchers.
UKRI expects host institutions to have effective and transparent arrangements in place for selecting the applicants supported for this highly competitive scheme. They have been very clear in requesting support from universities to reduce the number of applications and only put forward a few high quality ones.
