    It seems to be something Irish academia have problems with generally.

    It may be better if UCC, CIT and NMCI offered more research Masters and PhD programmes in martime technologies that are funded and ideal funded by industry (ie they do the R&D for the business).

    From what I can see, the best of those involved in IMERC have over the last few years moved the the UCC Beaufort facility and MarEI or CIT's Halpin Centre.
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    Navies are at their best doing their day job. R&D is a minefield of research and funding raising. Reflected glory is available and so also is doo-doo, when it hits the fan. We need to balance our paths of progress.

    Have a look what they were trying to get out of it

    Leveraging NS tech expertise and experience
    In addition, it was a chance for NS personnel to Upskill and for the taxpayer to indirectly support industry (eg using an NS vessel as an R&D platform).

    It had the potential to create a lot of jobs and assist retention and funding of the NS.

    Certainly aspirational but The Irish Examiner quotes criticism of how things were run including weak supervision, planning and disbursement of funds. In all cases in the future oversight may be a predominant requirement.
