Data Impact Fellows

Our Data Impact Fellows scheme provides support for Early Career Researchers in the academic and charity sectors who are starting out on their data impact journey.

The scheme offers Fellows a bursary to fund impact-related activities, an opportunity to meet other Fellows to share and develop their ideas for pursuing pathways to impact, and the chance to communicate their research and impact work through our Data Impact blog.

Our previous cohorts of Fellows have come from a range of disciplines and backgrounds in academia and the charity sector. They all have in common their use of data from the UK Data Service collection and a desire to develop their understanding of data impact theory and practice.

Some Fellows have worked with us to develop impact case studies, while others have explored new forms of collaboration with other Fellows.

Fellows have joined us on Twitter for a #UKDSchat. Topics have included how Early Career Researchers develop impact in their research and, during the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic, #DoingResearchNow.

Applications for the 2023 cohort of Data Impact Fellows which be launching in January 2023, so keep an eye on this page.
