The program is highly competitive with a selection successful rate from 8% to 13% in the past 5 years.
With the purpose of developing cloud computing research beyond its present state, CleanSky is a training network focused on educating early stage researchers at the PhD level and experienced researchers within a range of advanced methodologies and techniques. It will last 4 years from September 2014 to August 2018. The CleanSky consortium consists of 6 full partners and 4 associate partners from both academic and industrial fields. Being the Director of HKUST-DT System and Media Laboratory, Prof Hui plays a leading role in the joint research and training activities. He will co-supervise PhDs, host research visits of the researchers from the CleanSky network, and give invited talks and tutorials at summer schools and workshops.
