Research Themes

The ALECS research themes are associated with Lero’s research remit. There are four broad ALECS research themes:

Methods and Standards for High Integrity Systems
 Autonomous and Adaptive Systems
 Software Performance
 Security and Privacy

• Applicants have the freedom to choose their individual research project. However, the research topic must be aligned with the programme’s research themes and the prospective academic supervisor’s research interests.

• If you think you might be interested in applying for an ALECS fellowship, but you are unsure whether your proposed research topic falls under the programme’s research umbrella, please register interest at and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

• You must contact an ALECS academic supervisor, whose research interest is aligned with your research topic before applying. The list of participating academic supervisors is shown here (click on “READ MORE” under each photo to see the supervisor’s profile including their broad research interests).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 754489.
