The programme aims to provide the fellows a 36 months stay in Navarra to work on innovative projects in the fields of health, automotive-mechatronics and advanced manufacturing and energy, with artificial intelligence applied as a cross-sectional area to each of the research lines. The project’s goal is to generate a positive impact in excellent science, innovation, and talent attraction and retention.
