      Hi all

      I just got sent this and if you ever wondering what those SFI funded CSETs (big research centres in the universities) get up to this is your chance.

      This is a free chance to hear cutting edge talks in science and engineering..



      The CSET Thesis in Three Final takes place this evening in the Sugar Club,
      Dublin 2 at 7.30pm (http://www.thesugarclub.com/contact-us.jsp).

      As part of Innovation Dublin, CLARITY and the Centre for Next Generation
      Localisation (CNGL) are co-ordinating a "CSET Thesis in Three" event, on
      Wednesday 17th November 2010 in the Sugar Club, at 7.30pm.

      This event,(http://www.innovationdublin.ie/index.php/festival-2010-events/thesis_ in_three_competition/) will feature students from six SFI-funded Centres for Science, Engineering and Technology (CSETs) Clarity, CNGL, LERO, BDI, SBI and CRANN presenting their doctoral research in a series of concise, rapidly paced talks consisting of 3 slides of precisely one minute each.

      The presentations will cover the broad range of science, engineering and technology disciplines the CSETs are currently exploring in Ireland today. Essentially, each presentation is a PhD elevator pitch, and will open up current Irish research to a wider audience. There will be prizes for first, second and third.

      In recognition of the fantastic research under-way in the CSETs, the
      Commercial Development Managers have decided to award additional prizes for the theses which demonstrate the greatest potential for commercialisation. The prizes will be awarded by the CDMs based upon a combination of overall market potential, competitive positioning and state of development.

      Competition Judges:

      Stephen Flinter
      Scientific Programme Manager
      IC&ET Directorate, Science Foundation Ireland (SFI)

      Ben Hurley
      National Digital Research Centre (NDRC)

      Michael McAleer
      The Irish Times Innovation business magazine

      More information on the night – speakers, judges, centres, is available on
      the website (http://www.clarity-centre.org/thesisin3/).

      Everyone is welcome to this event which promises to be very exciting.
