We want to create the world’s most prestigious teaching and research Fellowship. It will attract global leaders from industry and academia to the University of Limerick (UL). AWS-ISE Global Fellows will spend between three weeks and six months inspiring our students, working with our researchers, and engaging with ISE’s growing coalition of industry partners.
You might be none of these things, and that’s fine too. You don’t need to be a technologist, but you do need to care about technology and innovation and be willing to contribute to the creation of a medium- and long-term network of collaboration. You need to commit to a culture of excellence and to be responsible for delivering on the promise of this prestigious Fellowship.
Our key prerequisites are passion for your topic and a willingness to work with others, particularly ISE’s faculty and students, and our new R@ISE research programme. How you work with us, and who specifically you work with, is defined by your proposal. You express the value you wish to create with us, and we will work with you to make your project happen. The best way to figure that out is to email us at [email protected] to start the conversation.

Limerick was established in 922 AD, and is now viewed as Ireland’s cultural, artistic, and most recently, digital hub, as it hosts a wealth of industry players and innovators in the technology space. It is also a key contributor to theatre, literature, comedy and the visual arts. Limerick lies on the River Shannon in the centre of Ireland’s MidWest Region. The city is immersed in history, yet is becoming known as much for its dining scene and street art as it is for its castles, cathedrals and museums. Limerick is also part of a major EU funding initiative to become a ‘smart city’ in an effort to build a sustainable region where digital technologies improve quality of life, empower communities and enable economic growth. The Limerick senior men’s hurlers are the current All Ireland Hurling Champions after winning their third title in a row against Kilkenny.
