Research and Innovation Programmes at UCD benefit from major funding and collaboration with China

Published 30 July 2018

University College Dublin has announced it will lead three next generation research projects in collaboration with China, backed by funding of more than 3 million euros. The Science Foundation of Ireland (SFI) selected UCD along with three other Irish universities for 8 research projects in collaboration with Chinese institutions.

UCD’s research programmes in areas such as wireless communications, chemical engineering and nano technology are set to benefit hugely from this investment over the next four years and will further enhance the University’s international research impact. Professor Anding Zhu will head research in high speed wireless communications, professor Kenneth Dawson will lead research projects in nanostructures and precision engineering while professor Niall English will explore molecular simulation studies.

International students have ample opportunities to study research in diverse fields under expert guidance and world class facilities at one of Ireland’s leading research universities.
