Science Foundation Ireland

ENABLE Spoke to launch later this year

ENABLE is a new Science Foundation Ireland Spoke on Smart Communities involving the collaboration of CONNECT with Lero and Insight – two other SFI research centres.

ENABLE will be led by Professor Siobhán Clarke, Principal Investigator at CONNECT, and Professor at the School of Computer Science and Statistics in Trinity College Dublin.

ENABLE aims to connect communities to smart urban environments through the Internet of Things (IoT). It will address the challenges that currently limit the potential benefits of IoT for communities by enabling smarter buildings, more efficient transportation/mobility, better handling of environmental issues, better decision support, and enhanced cyber and infrastructure security and data privacy.

CONNECT is the world leading Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Future Networks and Communications. CONNECT is funded under the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres Programme and is co-funded under the European Regional Development Fund. We engage with over 35 companies including large multinationals, SMEs and start-ups. CONNECT brings together world-class expertise from ten Irish academic institutes to create a one-stop-shop for telecommunications research, development and innovation.
