DkIT Academics Provided Three Minutes to Explain their Research

17 January 2024

The School of Informatics & Creative Arts in Dundalk Institute of Technology (DkIT) recently held an exceptionally informative and high energy event which highlighted and promoted the diverse range of research that is currently been undertaken in the School. The event was called ‘Research in Three’. The concept of this event was that each academic had to present their research in no more than three minutes with no more than three slides to a general audience. It was a great way for the researchers to hone their 'elevator pitch' explanation of their research, whilst the entire event gave a great overview of the research that is currently being performed across the School of Informatics & Creative Arts.


The event was opened by Prof. Fergal McCaffery, Head of School of Informatics and Creative Arts. Prof. McCaffery spoke about the importance of research for the Institute and how it is central to assist DkIT in its journey towards university status whilst increasing the Institutes profile nationally and internationally. DkIT already has a strong reputation for its applied research and has developed impressive access to companies and research in the community.
