Moore Institute student wins IRC award for poster competition

Congrats to Eavan O'Dochartaigh from the Moore Institute, NUI Galway for winning the Irish Research Council Award for her poster "Defrosting the Data: Exploring the Art and Literature of the Franklin Expeditions to the Arctic"

The Irish Research Council (IRC) funded a poster session and reception on the first day of the RDA Third Plenary Meeting - 26th March 2014, during which some of the multi-disciplinary IRC-funded PhD and Post Doc research that demonstrates open access and sharing of publicly funded research data, or uses (exploits) openly accessible publicly funded research data was showcased.

Using a crowd-sourced approach, delegates at the meeting voted for the "best" poster and the author of that poster - Eavan O'Dochartaigh - received a research networking and travel grant of €1,000. The award was presented by Dr. Eucharia Meehan, Director of the Irish Research Program during the RDA plenary 3 evening reception on Wednesday 26th March at the Croke Park Conference Centre.
