The goal of Individual Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition at multi- or interdisciplinary level through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility. Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

BBSRC and NERC invite proposals for both research and research translation projects to the first call of the Sustainable Agriculture Research & Innovation Club (SARIC). Approximately £5M of funding is available for this call, divided between: research grants (£3.5M) and research translation grants (£1.5M). Proposals should address the first key challenge identified by SARIC industry members: Resilient and robust crop and livestock production systems. The twin focus on both research and research translation in SARIC is represented by two specific funding streams that will operate concurrently. Research proposals will provide new data and knowledge. Research translation proposals will support innovative approaches to translating existing research data and knowledge into new tools, technologies and other outcomes that create tangible economic or societal benefits.

Eurostars is a programme that supports research-performing small and medium enterprises, which develop innovative products, processes and services, to gain competitive advantage. Eurostars does this by providing funding for transnational innovation projects; the products of which are then rapidly commercialized.
