Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United States will participate in three new US-Ireland R&D projects under a scheme that builds research links across the three jurisdictions.
Details of the awards were announced on 14 November during the Science Foundation Ireland Science Summit at Croke Park, Dublin.
SFI is putting €2.5 million into the three collaborations over the next two to three years, it said. The projects would involve eight post docs and two PhD students. It said that the researchers would engage with at least 14 companies over that period.
