R&I Programmes Executive We are seeking to fill a full-time vacancy that has arisen as a result of increased interest in our Research & Innovation (R&I) Funding Programmes, as well as some exciting new initiatives that we shall be launching shortly.

Through this role we can truly support the strengthening of R&I in Malta whilst providing incentives to stimulate further engagement of local entities in research, to have a resulting positive effect on our economy. We have recently made significant progress in providing for awareness-raising and training within the Space sector, in order to jump-start participation of local entities in Space research and commercial endeavours.
