GA Tech-Ireland Research Collaborations & Dublin, European Science City of 2012

Dinner and social hour begin at 7:00 pm with an approximately hour-long presentation and question-and-answer session to follow.

Our Open Seating Policy will be in effect for this event.

Venue capacity = 80 / Estimated day-of RSVP turnout = 50%

Atlanta is proud to have been selected as the home of the first new Irish Consulate to be opened in the U.S. since the 1930s. Facilitating and encouraging scientific cooperation between the US south-east and Ireland is an important part of the work of the new Consulate.

Please join us as Consul General Paul Gleeson introduces to us to Ireland, not only as an important business partner and a wonderful tourist destination, but also as source of opportunities for world-class university education and research. Also, information will be provided on Dublin’s role as European City of Science in 2012.

Shane Owens of the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) will be showcasing a number of science and engineering collaborations underway between faculty and researchers at Tech and their Irish counterparts. In particular, he will describe ongoing work involving radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, specifically projects having to do with making building more energy efficient and making guns safer. In addition Shane will tell us about GTRI's Direct to Discovery program that allows Irish students to connect with Georgia Tech professors using HD videoconferencing equipment.

    The subject was interesting enough, and expounded eloquently by all three gentlemen who spoke to the group about bio-medical (mostly) liaisons between Georgia Tech and Ireland.

    The low-key presentation was a welcome change from the usually packed house. As such, the intimate setting provided an additional benefit in that the presenters seemed more relaxed and "off the cuff." There certainly was more time for follow-up questions with the audience at the end of the meetup.

    It was good to see the 3 speakers' enthusiasm for their program. I heartily agree that sending college students abroad for a term is a highly enriching experience so I was glad to hear that GA Tech has such an active study abroad program. The descriptions of various technical innovations were interesting, too. I learn a lot at the Science Tavern meetings and enjoy the social interaction as well. Thanks to all involved for bringing us such diverse topics to provide a focus for our gatherings.

    Interesting presentations and I was surprised by the level of collaboration between GT & Irish universities. Very encouraging!
