The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 was set up to run the Great Exhibition. When that made a profit the Commission was kept in being by Prince Albert to 'increase the means of industrial education and extend the influence of science and art upon productive industry'. Today it spends £2m a year mostly in support of science and engineering research. The Commission's Secretary, Nigel Williams, will be talking about the Industrial Fellowship, worth up to £80,000 over three years. The Fellowships are aimed at helping exceptional graduates working in Industry conduct a programme of research in conjunction with a university that leads to a patent, product or process and a higher educational qualification. The Commission will pay 50% of salary (up to £20,000 a year), all university costs and provides a yearly travel allowance of up to £3,500.
