POST-DIGITAL is a doctoral-level European Training Network (ETN) funded by the European Commission under Horizon2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN Action.
POST-DIGITAL will provide 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) with a world-class advanced training programme educating them to the level of the next generation of leaders in the fields of unconventional computing with light and neuromorphic computing. This will be achieved by exploiting challenging interaction between the 8 academy and 5 industrial consortium members.
POST-DIGITAL ESRs will acquire unique scientific and technical skills joining photonics with neuromorphic computing with the aim of developing novel post-digital computing systems which will surpass classical digital information processing in terms of processing concepts, bandwidth, layers, adaptation and learning mechanisms.
ESRs in POST-DIGITAL will acquire a uniquely broad interdisciplinary education, which will enables them to design and develop unconventional computing systems which, for the first time, will pass over the threshold of real-world exploitability.
Positions will be available at Aston University (UK); University of Groningen (Netherlands); Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté (France); Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium); Agencia Estatal de Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (Spain); Thales (France); LightOn (France); IMEC (Belgium); VLC Photonics (Spain); IBM Research Labs Zurich (Switzerland).
POST-DIGITAL Partner Organisations providing secondments and specialised training are: IniLabs (Switzerland); University of Ghent (Belgium); Universitat de les Illes Balears (Spain).
