- Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster today announced £1.7 million of Invest Northern Ireland (Invest NI) assistance towards a unique joint research initiative by SAP UK and Intel Corporation.

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster today, January 27th, announced £1.7 million of Invest Northern Ireland (Invest NI) assistance towards a unique joint research initiative by SAP UK and Intel Corporation.

 

SAP and Intel are two of the world’s leading Information Communications Technology (ICT) companies. In October 2009, they established a research laboratory at SAP’s premises in Titanic Quarter, Belfast, where the companies employ a research team working on cutting-edge research in the field of sustainable ICT.

 

Announcing the support the Minister said: “This is a highly innovative and internationally significant initiative that promises to deliver exciting research results in the areas of ICT related energy efficiency and new computing technologies.”

 

“Although SAP and Intel have engaged in research together before, this is the first time that they have established a shared physical location with pooled resources. It is significant that these major ICT multinationals chose Northern Ireland as the location for this initiative. It reflects their confidence in the IT skills available here and in particular, the high value they place on the opportunity to work closely with our universities. ICT is a priority sector for Invest NI as it is a key driver for economic growth. This project will enhance Northern Ireland’s ability to attract further research and development investment in ICT.”

 

SAP’s Northern Ireland research location was established in January 2005 with support from Invest NI. It was the organisation’s first such research location in the UK and Ireland region. This investment will expand SAP’s research presence in Northern Ireland and create Intel Ireland’s first research footprint here. Invest NI support includes part funding from the European Regional Development Fund.

 

Martin Curley, Director Intel Labs Europe said: “Intel has a long standing research partnership with SAP and our collaborations have resulted in some exciting advancements in ICT, in particular enhancing the ability to manage complex, large scale IT environments. With SAP’s positive experience in Northern Ireland in terms of access to highly skilled people and a strong academic base, this collaboration was a very attractive option.”

 

Hervé Couturier, executive vice president business information technology & global research at SAP said: “SAP has worked closely with Invest NI since establishing a base here in 2005. Since then the local knowledge base has continued to impress us and complement our ongoing work to secure advances in cloud computing. This will be further enhanced by our research partnership with Intel in Belfast.”

- The student awards were won by Jack Mc Cann from Loreto College Coleraine and Muireasa Carroll, Mairéad Kingston and Denise Hurley from Sacred Heart Secondary School in Cork. The Educator of Excellence award was won by Kevin Carey from Colaiste Phadraig, Lucan

- The winners of the Intel awards receive the prize of an all expenses trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) being held this year in Los Angeles, California

 

Last night, Intel selected the winners of the prestigious Intel Student and Educator of Excellence awards at the BT Young Scientist and Technology exhibition. Intel is now in its 13th year as a Gold Sponsor of the exhibition and recipients of the Intel awards receive the prize of an all expenses trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) being held this year in Los Angeles, California.


This year for the first time Intel selected 2 recipients for the student award, with both a group and an individual receiving the top prizes.

 

Jack Mc Cann from Loreto College Coleraine was awarded the first of the Intel Student Awards for his project entitled ‘Dendritic crystallisation of potassium bromide’.  Jack’s project looked at the potassium bromide crystallises in a dendritic structure with a small quantity of lead present.  Intel has a particular focus on the Physics/Chemistry/Mathematic section at the exhibition and it is from this group of projects that the student award winners are selected.

 

The second of the Intel prizes was awarded to Muireasa Carroll, Mairéad Kingston and Denise Hurley from Sacred Heart Secondary School in Cork for their project entitled ‘An investigation into sea lettuce briquettes’. For their project the girls have invented fire briquettes from hazardous sea lettuce, a renewable fuel.

 

Each of the winning students along with their teachers, Brian McKenna and Claire Holland, will fly off in May to represent Ireland at the Los Angeles event.

 

Kevin Carey from Colaiste Phadraig, Lucan, won the Intel Educator of Excellence award at this year’s event. This award gives Intel the opportunity to recognise the unsung heroes of the exhibition - the teachers, who do so much work behind the scenes to support and encourage their students.
 
Eamonn Sinnott, Intel Ireland General Manager and Vice President, Technology Manufacturing Group, presented the winners with their prizes, “Intel is delighted to again be associated with this event which is such an important showcase and celebration of science. I am honoured to present the Intel Awards as they are a fantastic way to recognise the importance of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects among the students of today who will become tomorrow's leaders in the high-tech industry ”.


Intel is delighted to again be involved as a Gold Sponsor of the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition as we believe that the event provides an important platform for students to engage in skills based learning. It is also an important tool in the promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, subjects which form the building blocks of a Smart Economy.

 

Along with sponsoring the two awards at the event, Intel participates in the Industries hall at the exhibition, showcasing Intel technology and solutions to the thousands of visitors who attend during the multi-day event.

 

A special award was also presented by the TRIL (Technology Research for Independent Living) centre of which Intel is a collaborative partner. The TRIL Special award category was designed to recognize a Young Scientist who had conducted an innovative project that sheds light or had a direct impact on the problems faced by older people, ranging from a new technology or device to new ideas about how to improve the physical, cognitive or social health of our older population. The recipients of the award this year were Róisín Dunbar and Chloe Reid from F.C.J Secondary School, Wexford for their project entitled ‘Push Electric’.
