Two DCU academics, Dr Gabriel-Miro Muntean and Professor Regina Connolly, have been awarded the Inaugural 2019 LERO Director’s Prizes.
LERO is Ireland’s largest SFI-funded software research centre, and the Director’s prizes are awarded in recognition of outstanding academic research achievement and contribution.
The LERO’s Director’s prize for Research Excellence was presented to Dr Gabriel-Miro Muntean from DCU’s School of Electronic Engineering. This award was in recognition of his research record in the area of adaptive multimedia and multi-sensory networking.
The LERO Director’s Prize for Diversity and Inclusion was presented to Professor Regina Connolly from DCU’s Business School. This award was in recognition of her research record in the area of digital inclusion and its impact on public policy transformation.
Professor Brian Fitzgerald, director of LERO, who presented the awards at the annual LERO Summit in Athlone recently, said: “What makes LERO unique is the high calibre of its academic members and it is a credit to the centre that we had so many strong nominations for the inaugural director’s prize.
“Congratulations to the 2019 Lero director’s prize winners. They are leaders in their respective fields and I wish them well as they continue achieving excellence.”http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2019/09/09/two-dcu-academics-scoop-awards-for-outstanding-academic-research-achievements/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/a1-14.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/a1-14-300x300.jpgNewsawards,DCU,Lero
