A leading research, consultancy and technology development company, has announced the creation of ten new roles after the company was awarded €1.23m in EU funding to undertake cutting-edge research in climate change, cyber-security and combatting misinformation.
These new roles, which are in addition to the 40 jobs announced as part of Trilateral Research’s expansion last year, will support the company’s machine learning, AI and software specialisms alongside their data ethics, data protection and cyber-risk services. The jobs will include specialist social science researchers and trainers as well as support roles including marketing and communication, accounting and bookkeeping.
The funding which has been awarded from the EU’s Green Deal Work Programme, and the Internal Security Fund will enable research into public policy development in relation to climate change, cross-border information sharing in cyber-crime and techniques for combatting radicalisation and misinformation exposure and will highlight Trilateral’s interdiscipliary approach to tackling societal challenges in the public and private sector.
Minister for Business, Employment and Retail Damien English TD said, “I am very pleased to see the success achieved by Trilateral in securing over €1.2 million of EU funding which will enable the company to further expand their operations in the South-East of the country. The company’s work at the cutting edge of technology in delivering sustainable innovation to make society a better place is driven by a growing and talented workforce, a public-private collaborative approach to research and reflects the Government’s work to bring high-tech companies and high-quality jobs throughout the regions”.
Trilateral Research’s CEO, Kush Wadhwa said, “We are delighted to contribute to the EU’s efforts in these areas and look forward to applying our expertise in leveraging data through responsible AI to tackle the complex social problems that increasingly affect us all.”
“There is an exciting opportunity here for the South East Region to make a name for itself in relation to climate change, cyber-security and misinformation. In doing this work, Trilateral will leverage our local partnerships with universities, ITs and technology providers to ensure our work is cutting edge and showcases local capabilities.” added, Rachel Finn, Sr Practice Manager and Head of Irish Operations.
Shane Nolan, Head of Technology and Emerging Business said: “This announcement by Trilateral Research is more good news for the South East and demonstrates the region’s strong value proposition which includes the availability of a highly skilled and talented workforce.
