Plan for the non-academic secondments in the proposal:

  • Technical objective of non-academic secondments must be planned in the research proposal, and, where possible, a suggested secondment host should be identified
  • Secondments must be 6 months in duration and may be a single period or where the research warrants the period could be broken up into shorter stays of at least 2 months duration each
  • All Fellows must complete an intersectoral secondment of 6 months duration
  • Applicants will be provided with a list of possible secondment organisations but are free to suggest additional (national/international) secondment hosts provided they fit with the developmental needs of the fellow and/or the research project
  • Where secondment details cannot be finalised prior to submission, secondment hosts will not be evaluated as part of the selection process
  • Successful applicants will be supported in finalising a secondment host and supervisor by the primary supervisor and the Operational Support Team (OST) prior to the start of the fellowship
  • Eligible secondment hosts will need to be non-academic research performing organisations located anywhere in the world            
  • DIGI+ Primary Academic Supervisors along with the National University of Ireland Maynooth Associate Director Commercialisation will support applicants in finalising their secondment hosts and supervisors with the support of the DIGI+ Operational Support Team (OST).
