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 organisations and sector, play a key role in setting and exploring Challenge Themes, advise the Management Team on how to enhance industry engagement, act as expert advisors (for instance, in the review of research projects), and support impact generation.
