Event Outline

The SFI Early Career Researcher Forum will take place from 10am on 4th September in the Doubletree by Hilton, Burlington Road, Upper Leeson Street, Dublin, 4. The Forum will outline career paths which are available to early career researchers  and relevant programmes.  See Agenda.

Following a light lunch prescheduled one to one meetings “Face to Face with Industry”  will take place between researchers and companies who are interested in participating in the SFI Industry Fellowship programme.

The purpose of the SFI Industry Fellowship Programme is to facilitate exchanges between academia and industry to stimulate excellence through knowledge transfer and training, thereby building critical mass in areas of strategic importance for Ireland and enabling economic and societal challenges to be tackled. Fellowships will enable access for researchers to new technology pathways and standards and will facilitate training in the use of specialist research infrastructure.  Fellowships can be awarded to academic researchers wishing to spend time in industry worldwide and to individuals from industry anywhere in the world (including Ireland) wishing to spend time in an eligible Irish Research Body. Industry Fellowships can be for between 1 and 12 months in duration if full time or for up to 24 months if part time and the maximum Industry Fellowship award amount is €120,000 direct costs.

Full details on this programme are available on the SFI Industry Fellowship webpage.
