The programme is being developed by The Academy of Medical Sciences.
The FLIER: Future Leaders in Innovation, Enterprise and Research programme will be designed for people working in the life sciences sector and managing projects or teams, who increasingly undertake interdisciplinary working.
The programme will equip these emerging leaders with skills to help solve the biggest health challenges we will face, and enable them to seize opportunities afforded to us by new discoveries in science, technology and medicine.
The two-year programme will bring together a cohort of emerging leaders drawn from across academia, industry, the NHS and government/policy organisations and will include:
Residential and one-day meetings to expose participants to current national and international leaders across the wider scientific and health ecosystem
Face-to-face and virtual workshops
Regular tailored coaching sessions from professionals at the forefront of leadership development
Mentorship from a leader in the life sciences sector
Cross-sector immersion experiences with an array of other organisations
A cross-sector project. This will take place in the second year and will be an opportunity to apply acquired strategic and higher-level operational skills to a work-based project while being supported by colleagues, a coach and a mentor
FLIER is aimed at individuals in the middle of their career, established within their own sector, with the potential to effect organisational change and undertake a cross-sector project currently or in the near future.
Applications for round 1 will be open until 17 October 2018.
