The Irish Times published a special report on Friday, 12 August 2022, showing the importance of research, development and innovation (RDI) for Ireland. It points out that RDI is a key driver of innovation across academia and industry but also a marker of how successful a country is globally.
Dr Ciarán Seoighe, Deputy Director General of Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) said, “Ireland’s R&D sector is strong, in large part, thanks to the high level of collaboration between industry, academia and the State.”
Seoighe cited NexSys as a successful collaboration between industry, academia and the State, which is a €16 million strategic partnership between SFI and a number of industry co-funding partners to decarbonize the energy sector.
NexSys was officially launched by Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris, T.D in May 2022, which is an all-island, multidisciplinary energy research program hosted by the UCD Energy Institute in partnership with eight other leading research institutions that are defining pathways to a net zero energy system.
