Cirrus is working in partnership with The Academy of Medical Sciences to create a ground-breaking leadership programme which will connect future leaders from across academia, industry, the NHS and government to drive innovation.
The unique FLIER (Future Leaders in Innovation, Enterprise and Research) programme will develop leaders of the future.
The Academy of Medical Sciences is the independent body in the UK representing the diversity of medical science. its mission is to advance biomedical and health research and its translation into benefits for society.
The FLIER programme is designed for people managing projects or teams in the life sciences sector who are increasingly undertaking interdisciplinary working. The programme will help the Academy to achieve its strategic challenges for 2017-21 and extend its work in developing talented researchers.
This innovative, two-year programme will blend face-to-face and virtual workshops with tailored coaching sessions, mentorship and cross-sector immersion experiences and project working with an array of other organisations.
Cirrus developed the programme in partnership with a cross-sector task force of senior leaders. It is designed to equip emerging leaders with the 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.
Participants will have an emerging vision of how cross-sector working and collaboration can help maximise opportunities and solve the future challenges of research and healthcare. They will seek to explore and shape their vision in dialogue with colleagues across sectors.
The Academy of Medical Sciences is currently seeking applications from potential participants with the motivation, vision and potential to make a difference and lead change.
Applications for round 1 are open until 17 October 2018. If you are interested in applying, please download the FLIER Programme Application Guidelines for further details.
