Programme Fellows

Contribute to the strategic development of the Programme by applying to become a Programme Fellow. We welcome applicants from industry, academia, and regulatory organisations. 

"Due to the scale of the task, it is vital that the research remains focused on open questions directly relevant to industrial applications. I see my contribution as providing direct insight into the key challenges the industry faces as well as the practicality of solutions developed within the research programme."

Professor Dr Simon Burton, Programme Fellow

Programme Fellows contribute to our critical barriers to assurance and regulation, analysis and certification frameworks, design and assurance principles for systems using learning and artificial intelligence, dynamic risk assessment frameworks, our Body of Knowledge and/or developing a strong international community

Our funding will support reasonable travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses for visiting fellows to take up a one-month residency at the University of York.
