Researchers at the Technological University of the Shannon (TUS) will unveil a series of research projects for the very first time at the inaugural TUS Research Week.
Taking place from April 17 to 21, 2023, this week-long event will include a range of informative, hybrid talks and workshops across the TU’s campuses and online. The initiative offers an opportunity for industry, academia and the public to discover and explore the wide variety of projects undertaken by researchers at TUS.
Vice President for Research Development and Innovation at TUS, Dr Liam Brown, who spearheaded the initiative said, “TUS Research Week provides us with an opportunity to share our current research projects with the wider TUS community, our stakeholders and the general public. As well as demonstrating best practices in applied research across our multiple campuses, we will be showcasing some of our collaborative European projects and initiatives that are making a meaningful global impact.” “Partnership is a key driver of research, and several collaborative initiatives will be highlighted throughout the week including ‘Science Meets Regions, the Circular Economy Forum’, ‘The Nighttime Economy and Opportunities for the Midlands’ and the ‘ORCHESTRA project’, which increases sustainability in the fruit value chain. This will also include our European Universities Alliance: RUN-EU (Regional University Network – European University) where the key focus is on Future and Sustainable Industries, the Bioeconomy and Social Innovation.”
The core ethos of TUS Research Week is to create an engaging platform, where the huge range of innovative projects and initiatives from areas such as Technology, Engineering, Business and Science will be featured. This will generate a culture of collaboration, in addition to stimulating creativity, creating real-world impacts and fostering economic development in a regional, national and international capacity.
