The government funded programme known as the Industry Fellowship Programme is aimed at creating stronger links between those involved in the academic fields and those in the industry by creating more opportunities to make the move from studying, in to the chosen career.

Science Foundation Ireland has now begun working with some of the largest research companies in Ireland like IBM, Bell Labs Ireland, Alcatel-Lucient and Intel, to make the transition as achievable as possible for people taking part in the programme.
