Researchers in Residence

Opportunity code:


Closing Date:



The Catapult Researchers in Residence (RIR) programme is designed to enable leading academics to spend research visits in one or more Catapult centres.  Each Researcher in Residence will undertake a project that will generate impact from research. Projects must be strategic in nature and aligned with one of the challenge areas identified by the Catapults, and also drive the creation of new activities or projects relevant to the overall mission of the host Catapult’s. The focus should be impact generation in the broadest sense.

The aims of the RIR initiative are to:

  • Accelerate the impact of RC-funded research
  • Increase knowledge exchange and co-creation between academia and Catapult centres
  • Develop new collaborations between academia and Catapult centres
  • Expand the capabilities and knowledge of the Catapults
  • Nurturing talents and skills development of researchers and Catapult staff
  • Create a cohort of RiRs able to share their experiences with a wider network of academics.
