Trilateral Research is to add 10 new jobs in Waterford after the company was awarded €1.2 million in EU funding to undertake research in climate change, cyber-security and the combatting of misinformation. This is in addition to 40 jobs announced in an expansion last year.
The new roles will support the company’s machine learning, AI and software specialisms alongside their data ethics, data protection and cyber-risk services.
The funding 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.
Trilateral Research Chief Executive, 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.”
Rachel Finn, Sr Practice Manager and Head of Irish Operations, added:
“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.”
