The Royal Academy of Engineering is accepting proposals for its Industrial Secondment Scheme. This supports early to mid-career academics to undertake a secondment in industry to conduct a collaborative research project. The secondment allows the awardee to gain knowledge and first-hand experience of current industry working practice. Upon their return to the university, the awardee will use their industrial experience to enhance both their teaching and student learning. The scheme is now open for applications with a deadline of 4pm Tuesday 31st of May 2016.
