About the Industry Fellowship Programme 2017
The purpose of the Industry Fellowship Programme 2017 is to enhance industry-academia collaborations through the funding of collaborative industry-academia research projects, and to stimulate excellence through knowledge exchange and training of engineers and scientists. Both aims will be pursued by the Industry Fellowship Programme, through the temporary placement of academic researchers in industry, and of industry researchers in academia. Fellowships can have a duration between 1 and 12 months if full-time, and between 2 and 24 months if part-time. The maximum Industry Fellowship award amount is €100,000 direct costs. See SFI.ie for more information.
