AHRC and ESRC are offering a number of fellowships offering design researchers the opportunity to work in collaboration with a business or public sector organisation that is interested in putting design principles into practice. 24th April 2014 is the deadline for applications, fellows can spend up to 12 months working directly with their partner organisation.
Partnerships have been developed with three organisations that are interested in hosting a funded Design Fellow within their organisation: The Design Council, Skills Development Scotland and The Cabinet Office Policy Lab. Applicants are also able to apply to this call in collaboration with an alternative host organisation or business of their choice. A collaborative project that will be of interest and benefit to both the researcher and the host organisation will need to be proposed.
