The ELITE-S project, co-ordinated by Prof. Markus Helfert, Maynooth University, aims to address the needs of the ICT standards landscape by recruiting and training researchers to be leaders in this field. The programme offers specific standards training, increases their research profile through intersectoral and interdisciplinary collaborations which in turn translates into career opportunities and uptake of leading positions in their field in both academic and non-academic settings.
The programme addresses the 5 EU priority areas: 5G, Internet of Things, cloud computing, cybersecurity and data technologies, these are of extreme importance in Ireland and internationally. The programme offers 16 prestigious 2-year postdoctoral fellowships for incoming mobility across two calls for proposals over the 60 months’ duration of the project. Candidates are free to choose their research topic, supervision and secondment host when applying and they must comply with the eligibility criteria.
The objectives of the programme are to:
Parallel to the organisation of the calls, training and development opportunities were organised for the fellows from and the first summer school was run virtually due to social distancing measures in place and lockdown restrictions.
