The UK Data Service is supporting ways to support the long-range use of its data and resources by new generations of scholars, extending this usage through the research partnerships they develop and by the students they teach - from the earliest stages of, and throughout their career - by running a second prestigious Data Impact Fellows programme. Funded by the ESRC the programme aims to provide career development opportunities for scholars at a relatively early stage of their academic careers with a proven record of research.
The programme takes the form of an open competition for early career researchers (ECR) and post-doctoral researchers with a specific focus on impact in their research, which must be using data from the UK Data Service.
Five awards are offered to the value of £2000 per Fellow and the programme runs over 2 years, which Fellows can use to cover impactful public engagement activity such as: holding focus groups, international conference costs or the cost of an article processing charge for a publication.
