Innovation Fellows

UEA is full of talented and driven innovators leading the way in their field. Our Innovation Fellowships recognise those who have a truly outstanding track record of achievement and entrepreneurship, with the award of a bursary allowing them to further their work. 

Our current Innovation Fellows provide informal inspiration and guidance to those along various stages of their own entrepreneurial journey, exemplifying our commitment to impact locally, nationally and internationally across different sectors.
