ASSISTID is a new international Training and Career Development programme in Ireland offering 40 fellowships to Experienced Researchers.
ASSISTID will promote research into the development and application of assistive technologies to enhance the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities and autism, their carers and families.
ASSISTID will be co-ordinated by the DOCTRID Research Institute in Dublin, Ireland. DOCTRID RI is a distributed research network consisting of all Irish universities and partner universities in the UK and the USA.
ASSISTID will publish 2 calls for proposals, each offering 16 fellowships for incoming mobility and 4 fellowships for outgoing mobility. Fellows have full freedom in the choice of their research topic, provided that it falls within the wide research area of ‘Assistive Technologies for Autism and Intellectual Disabilities’.
This project is co-funded through the Marie Curie FP7 COFUND programme.
