Supported by a philanthropic donation to the University by Warwick alumnus – Rui Fernandes, the Fernandes Fellowships provide early career researchers at European institutions an opportunity to undertake a three-month visit to Warwick (possibly split over two or three visits) in order to develop long-term research collaborations. The University is delighted to welcome our first cohort of six Fernandes Fellows to Warwick.
