Career-FIT: Career Development Fellowships in the National Technology Centre Programme










ENTERPRISE IRELAND Horizon 2020 invites applicants to its new Marie Skłodowska-Curie cofunded trans-national programme that offers an opportunity for experienced researchers to develop their careers in market focused applied research in Ireland’s Technology Centres, with an enterprise secondment (of 6-12 months in an Enterprise Ireland client company) during the Fellowship (of 36 months).

Covering a wide range of academic and industry areas aligned with Ireland’s Smart Specialisation Strategy, the 15 Technology Centres were established to encourage greater efficiency in the interaction between researchers, industry, and the public sector, in research that promotes economic growth by its direct relevance to industry agendas.

Each multidisciplinary Centre offers excellent facilities and equipment for Fellow use:  experienced scientific staff to support the Fellow’s research and extensive enterprise relationships on which market focused applied research can be progressed. 

There will be two calls under the Career-FIT programme. The second call has an application deadline of 30th April 2018. There will be 27 fellowships awarded in this call.
