PRiME PhD Student awarded HiPEAC Collaboration Grant
Congratulations to one of PRiME’s PhD students, Charlie Leech, who has successfully applied for a competitive HiPEAC Collaboration grant which allows him to undertake a three month internship with ARM Holdings plc in Cambridge.
HiPEAC (“High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation”) is an EU funded project that has provided a hub for European researchers in computing systems for over 10 years. It provides training, networking, dissemination and recruitment services to its members. Its network is made up of around 1,500 specialists in 39 countries.
Every year, HiPEAC funds several collaboration grants for HiPEAC PhD students and junior post-doctoral researchers wanting to visit another HiPEAC institution (either an academic institution or a company). The students and their host prepare a small research project for the stay and the HiPEAC steering committee decides on the final allocation of the collaboration grants – based on the quality of the proposals.
Charlie is based at the University of Southampton and this funding allows him to visit ARM for 3 months, starting in September, to work on a project on embedded machine learning software.
