Prof. Siobhán Clarke has been awarded a Science Foundation Ireland PI Award in Smart Cities


DSG’s Prof. Siobhán Clarke and Dr. Dirk Pesch from Cork Institute of Technology have recently been awarded a Science Foundation Ireland Principal Investigator grant in the Smart Cities domain. The proposed research will be focussed on investigating and demonstrating concepts of service-centric networks, in an urban setting, that aim at an embodiment of sensing, communication and computing based on cloud computing principles.

Future Cities: Trinity Centre for Smart and Sustainable Cities launched


The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Oisín Quinn, officially launched Trinity’s new, multi-disciplinary Research Centre, ‘Future Cities’, which will drive and inspire new ways of thinking about smart and sustainable cities. Speaking at the launch, the Lord Mayor welcomed the initiative. “There is a trend across the world towards cities. Successful cities are growing at a phenomenal rate. Dublin must do everything it can to position itself to be able to compete with other cities. I am very excited by this unique initiative to establish a Future Cities Centre in TCD”.
