Objectives
Abstract EPSRC is about to launch a call for 8-12 National Fellowships in Fluid Dynamics (NFFDy). The aim of this proposal is to embed these fellowships within the UK Fluids community using the resources and structure of the existing UK Fluids Network (UKFN). The UKFN has already shown how over 1000 fluid dynamics researchers in the UK can work together across nearly 50 Special Interest Groups. The NFFDY Hub will manage two key activities to enhance the continued success of the UK Fluids Community. First, the Hub will support the NFFDy cohorts throughout their research projects so that they are embedded within the UK Fluid Dynamics community. Second the Hub will enable a significant upgrade of the facilitation and organisation of the UK Fluids Network. The Hub will thereby create a national environment that empowers the UK Fluids community to grow its global reach and leadership, respond to the UK's societal challenges, and prepare for continued research and innovation opportunities.
