The Eiffel Vade Mecum program, which is established by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, is a highly competitive research excellence program with an acceptance rate of only 20% worldwide.
It is a matter of immense pride that ITU’s Embedded Computing Laboratory is the only research team selected from Pakistan this year!
Eiffel Vade-Mecum program requires joint research proposal submission from Pakistani and French counterparts and the selection process is based on peer review of the quality of research proposal, individual excellence of researchers involved, and the effectiveness of collaboration. Under this grant, Mr. Muhammad Asim Mukhtar, a PhD researcher at Electrical Engineering Department under the supervision of Dr. M. Khurram Bhatti (Assistant Professor), will spend one year of his PhD at Lab-STICC, France, and work on information security in many-core systems. More details about the program can be found here
