This programme is supported under the UK Government’s International Science Partnerships Fund. The £119m International Science Partnerships Fund is designed to enable potential and foster prosperity. It puts research and innovation at the heart of the UK’s international relationships, supporting UK researchers and innovators to work with peers around the world on the major themes of our time. It's managed by the Department for Science, Innovation & Technology. Delivered by a consortium of the UK’s leading research and innovation bodies.
The objective of the Global Innovation Fellowships is to provide opportunities to UK-based early- and mid-career researchers from across the humanities and social sciences to develop their skills, networks and careers in the creative and cultural, public, private and policy sectors to address challenges that require innovative approaches and solutions. Through the Global Innovation Fellowships, researchers in the SHAPE community will be supported to create new and deeper links beyond academia, so enabling knowledge mobilisation and translation, as well as individual skills development.
This is a new programme for the British Academy and in this pilot phase we are delighted to be offering opportunities for Global Innovation Fellowship award holders to embed themselves and be based in the offices of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
In a complex, changing, and increasingly contested world, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace generates strategic ideas and independent analysis, supports diplomacy, and trains the next generation of international scholar-practitioners to help countries and institutions take on the most difficult global problems and safeguard peace. It is recognized as the leading global foreign policy think tank. Carnegie’s experts are thinkers and doers from diverse disciplines and perspectives working together across borders on issues such as democracy, technology, and climate change with deep expertise and understanding of regional contexts in Asia, Africa, Europe, India, the Middle East, and Russia and Eurasia.
The aim is to have a mutually beneficial partnership between the fellowship award holder and Carnegie with each able to take advantage of fresh perspectives and expand their networks and reach. It will enable the award holder to strengthen and create new links across policy and academia, enabling knowledge mobilisation and translation, and the opportunity to develop new approaches and solutions to policy challenges through providing a different perspective.
Applications are invited in any of the following five areas:
- Sustainability, Climate and Geopolitics.
- Technology and International Affairs.
- Democracy, Conflict & Governance.
- Global Order and Institutions.
- Nuclear Policy.
There are not any preconceived ideas about the disciplinary background of the award holder, but the applicant will need to demonstrate a solid understanding of the relevant issues, including the applicable policy landscape and the systemic challenges that it faces. Language skills where relevant are desirable but not essential.
Scheme opens date: 10 July 2023
Application Deadline: Applications must be submitted by 1 November 2023, 17:00 GMT.
Starting period of award: Global Innovation Fellowships are expected to commence by September 2024. An earlier start date of March or April 2024 may be possible, in this case the applicant will need to explain how they will plan and manage their relocation on this faster timeline.
