This autumn The Alan Turing Institute welcomed 26 new Turing Fellows from The University of Manchester amongst its 250 new and returning Turing Fellows through its doors as they launched their third ever academic year.
For the first time, this new cohort of Fellows is drawn from 11 universities around the UK, following the expansion of the Institute’s university network from its five founding university partners, to thirteen, earlier this year.
Turing Fellows from the University of Bristol and the University of Southampton will join the research community slightly later to reflect the later time at which they joined the Institute network.
The Alan Turing Institute will also launch more than 50 new research projects in the coming months, all generated in partnership with our expanded university network.
Thanks to the university expansion and the growth of its research programmes and partners, the Alan Turing Institute now counts over 400 researchers in its community, including Turing Fellows (the largest group, made up of senior academics spending a portion of their time at the Institute), Turing Research Fellows (independent researchers employed by a partner university and based at the Institute), Doctoral Students (full time or spending an ‘enrichment’ period at the Institute) and visiting researchers from academia, business and government.
