Naughton Fellowship

The Naughton Fellowship was set up to provide opportunities for exceptional students of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, from both Ireland and from the US, to connect with leading researchers and to build stronger connections between the host institutions and countries.
The collaboration is between MESTECH in DCU and the ND-ECI (Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative) and involves students from both universities visiting the other campus to carry out research.
