The Distinguished International Associates Programme is a new programme for excellent international engineers working across all sectors, who are at the cutting edge of engineering research or innovation, and have existing collaborations or connections to the UK which they would like to intensify. In its first round, it will be open to alumni of Academy international programmes.

The programme aims to develop a broad international community or network of excellent diverse engineers across countries and disciplines, with research and innovation links to the UK, to work alongside the Academy to enhance progress towards achieving its goals for an inclusive economy and sustainable society.

Programme objectives

The programme’s objectives are to:

  • Support and strengthen existing collaborations and engagement between alumni of the Academy’s international programmes, and their peers in the UK engineering community
  • Empower Associates who can further broaden and demonstrate meaningful links with the UK and the Academy to promote their activities where they align with the Academy’s objectives
  • Build a peer support network of “International Associates” among alumni of the Academy’s international programmes, to facilitate international cooperation and to stimulate the engineering communities in participants’ home countries
  • Facilitate opportunities for alumni to create and strengthen their own research, innovation, or policy links to the UK engineering community

Awardees will be offered a grant to amplify the impact of their collaboration with the UK in an area which aligns with the Academy’s new strategic priority themes. The award would enable awardees to develop or strengthen their research, innovation, and policy links to the UK and to improve and deepen links between the UK and their country of residence, through visits, workshops, communication and public engagement activities.


Successful awardees will receive funding £10,000 for up to 24 months. The maximum which can be awarded for each awardee is £10,000. The award would be accompanied with participation in an international network of Distinguished International Associates, supported by the Academy, through annual events as well as online engagement opportunities.
