Evaluation of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Enterprise Fellowship Programme

Engineering is a vital building block of the UK economy with considerable economic and societal contributions. The Enterprise Fellowship Programme, delivered by the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Enterprise Hub, provides a package of support to assist entrepreneurial engineers in the process of developing innovations and successful ventures that will contribute to National Prosperity.  

After five years of operation, the Enterprise Fellowship Programme has supported 73 Fellows and provided over £4.5m of funding. At this point in time, the Royal Academy of Engineering is seeking to understand the economic contribution of the Programme, be able to communicate this with funders, and inform its future operational structure and strategic position.  

Steer Economic Development has been commissioned to undertake an evaluation of the Programme, analysing monitoring data, undertaking in-depth interviews with participants, partners and stakeholders and delivering a survey of both successful and unsuccessful applicants.  

Our findings will be presented in an evaluation report that will primarily focus on quantifying the Programme’s impact, supported by qualitative insights.
