Expert Fellows

Meet our Expert Fellows!

  • Our academic Expert Fellows enable SPRITE+ to develop a multidisciplinary approach to realising its vision. Fellows provide intellectual leadership, take a leading role in setting and exploring Challenge Themes, and help bridge the gaps between diverse cognate groups and networks.
  • Our non-academic Expert Fellows are champions for research engagement within their organisation and sector, play a key role in setting and exploring Challenge Themes, provide advice on industry engagement, act as expert advisors (for instance, in the review of research projects), and support impact generation.
