EPSRC and Science Foundation Ireland have announced that they will be encouraging and supporting research collaborations that transcend national boundaries and involve applications for joint projects from teams featuring researchers in the UK and in Ireland. It is expected that applications will be welcomed from all areas of EPSRC’s remit, including communications technologies. If you would like to find out more about the partnership, please sign up here for a morning event at the Science Gallery Dublin (Tues 25th April, 10.15 – 12.30pm) for the formal launch with Minister of State for Training Skills and Innovation, John Halligan TD and a Q&A.
Building ‘Science Bridges’ between the UK and the Communications and Networking communities internationally is an idea that CommNet2 would like to support and we hope to bring you more news on this new joint initiative in the future.
