RSE research promotes innovation and entrepreneurship and supports leading research that benefits Scotland’s cultural, economic and social wellbeing.
The RSE commits substantial resources to its research awards programme, providing types and amounts of funding unavailable from UKRI or other sources. These small-scale awards are critical for early career researchers, prior to attracting larger funding from UK, European and international sources. The RSE also supports and promotes related Scottish Government research programmes and emphasises inclusion and the importance of early career researchers.
Importantly, these support researchers from all academic disciplines; at any career stage; facilitate international and multidisciplinary collaboration; and fund research making a difference in the real world. Surveys confirm that our awards significantly impact supporting career development, facilitating collaborations, leveraging additional funding, and enabling knowledge exchange.
