20th anniversary of Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions

Dr. Adam Narbudowicz and Minister of State for Training and Skills John Halligan

The year 2016 marks 20th anniversary of Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions, an EU initiative to fund cutting-edge international research. The action, named after the ingenious Polish scientist who worked in France, supports early-career investigators who lead trans-national projects at two different universities, located in two different countries.

The Antenna & High Frequency Research Centre at DIT is proud to host Dr. Adam Narbudowicz, one of the awardees of the actions grant. Dr. Narbudowicz, also of polish origin, conducts research at both DIT’s School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering and RWTH Aachen University in Germany, aiming to provide enabling technologies for future wireless Internet of Things applications. He was recently joined by Minister of State for Training and Skills, Mr John Halligan, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the grant scheme, which took place in the old library of the Trinity College Dublin. This gave opportunity for a talk with the minister, in which Dr. Narbudowicz shared some of his insights and ideas on the future of wireless communication in Ireland.
