Hosting a SICSA Cyber Nexus Distinguished Visiting Fellow

We want you to have the opportunity to work with eminent academics or leading professionals in industry or the public sector, leading to long lasting relationships and potential future collaborations. Equally we want you to share this opportunity with students and other researchers from across SICSA.

We’re very proud of Scotland’s research strength in Cyber Security and Cyber Resilience and would love for more people to visit us – whether from industry or academia. We have no doubt that Scotland itself is appealing to potential visitors but recognise financial support can help seal the deal, so here’s how we can help:

Key Facts

The Funding will cover:

  • Return economy class air fare (limits applied to geographic regions)
