  • 7. Objectives • Focus is on knowledge transfer between academia and industry • Support for creation, development and reinforcement and execution of strategic partnerships, aimed at knowledge sharing and inter-sector mobility, based on targeted human resources interaction • Open to all disciplines – from Engineering to Social Sciences and Humanities • Bottom-up – no pre-defined topics or priority areas
  • 8. Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) • Minimum configuration is a university and company (one in Ireland, one abroad) • Funds staff exchange of – early stage (PhD) – experienced researchers (Postdocs) – Technical – Research managerial • Also funds hiring of additional staff (experienced researchers)
  • 9. IAPP Objectives Foster co-operation between non-commercial research organisations & commercial enterprises based on joint research projects. Stimulate long-term collaboration between sectors through secondment of researchers between the public & private research domains. Diverse career possibilities & research experience for researchers, knowledge sharing/cultural exchange.
