Research Fellowships in Zinc Mission 3

For Zinc’s third mission, which focuses on adding five more years of high quality to later life, they have opened up a Research Fellowship programme where two researchers joined Zinc’s in-house R&D team. The researchers have been working hands-on with the entrepreneurs who are part of the mission, as well as with the Zinc team and network of experts. Their work with entrepreneurs has focused on translating and embedding existing research as well as facilitating the generation and dissemination of new evidence. They have also worked to build a network of researchers across different institutions that are interested in specific problem areas, with a view to creating learning transfer opportunities.  

Learning outputs from the project will be disseminated in early 2021.
