CSIT Shortlisted for Research Laboratory Team of the Year

The Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) has been shortlisted for Research Laboratory Team of the Year in the Irish Laboratory Awards 2019.

CSIT has been announced as finalists in the Research Laboratory Team of the Year category, which celebrates the perfect blend of individuals who represent the ideal definition of team in a laboratory or research group working in either a commercial lab, at a third level or research institution and laboratories working in the public service and health care facilities.

CSIT, a research centre based at Queen's University Belfast, was established as the UK's national Innovation & Knowledge Centre (IKC) for cyber security in 2009 and was one of the first research labs in the UK to be accredited by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research.

Professor Máire O'Neill, Principal Investigator for CSIT, said:

"The laboratory team at CSIT work to achieve the commercialisation of emerging technologies through world-class research, new value and venture creation and an entrepreneurial approach in the area of cyber security. This unique environment encourages collaboration among academics, researchers, engineers, industry and government to accelerate the results of cyber and physical security research through to commercial application. The whole team is proud of the impact of the work that we do together and we are delighted to have been shortlisted in the Irish Laboratory Awards Research Laboratory Team of the Year category."

Launched in 2013, the Irish Laboratory Awards are the premier awards programme in Ireland for recognising and celebrating innovation and research within Ireland's laboratories.

The winners will be revealed at the 2019 gala awards and dinner on Thursday 7 March at the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin.
