‘The Freedom to Succeed, published in July 2005, is a review of non-clinical research fellowships in the biomedical sciences, focusing on the operation, successes and weaknesses of different UK fellowships schemes over the previous 20 years. Given the proliferation in biomedical research fellows over the preceding decade, many of whom were reaching the later stages of their fellowships, this review was initiated to investigate issues of sustainability and fitness for purpose. The study was conducted in the context of:

  • Routes of entry into fellowships in early career period, such as developments in graduate and post-doctoral training;
  • Routes of entry into mid and late career fellowships, such as fellowship renewal, temporary relief from lecturing or administrative duties; return or re-location to the UK ;
  • Routes of exit from fellowships, such as interactions with funding agencies and host institutions.

The report defines a number of key principles and makes recommendations on how best use can be made of research fellowships by the holders, Higher Education Institutions and granting agencies.
