Royal Academy of Engineering
Royal Academy of Engineering supports ambitious innovators and develops the engineering and innovation capacity of individuals, organisations and systems in Newton Fund partner countries.
The Leaders in Innovation Fellowships Programme (LIF) brings together the emerging leaders in the global innovation community, providing them with access to high-quality skills training focused on commercialisation, a network of peers in their own country, the UK and around the world, and a rich and varied experience with immediate and long-term benefits for their innovations.
The programme welcomes individuals with an interest in entrepreneurship and have an engineering based innovation that has the potential to contribute to the social and economic development of their country.
To solve today’s most pressing development and sustainability challenges, academics need to work with industry, government and the public to build trust, design appropriate solutions and scale their uptake.
Run by the Royal Academy of Engineering and delivered in partnership with innovation agencies in seven countries, the Transforming Systems through Partnership (formerly known as the Industry-Academia Partnerships (IAPP)) programme builds engineering teaching, research and innovation capacity within partner countries’ universities to collaborate with local stakeholders and UK academics in meeting local and global development challenges.
We build research and innovation partnerships with countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to support social and economic welfare, tackle global challenges and develop talent and careers.
We help UK and international researchers and innovators address the key issues affecting developing countries.
