The Norwegian ambassador to Ireland met a Smart Cities delegation from Lero, the SFI Research Centre for Software, at University of Limerick recently.

A welcome reception for the Norwegian delegation was held at Plassey House and hosted by UL Deputy President, Mr Gerry O’Brien. Her Excellency Else Berit Eikeland, Ambassador of Norway to Ireland then attended a meeting with Lero where Lero Director Professor Brian Fitzgerald delivered a brief presentation on the research centre before Professors Brian Donnellan and Markus Helfert, both Lero researchers in MU, outlined their ongoing research in the area.

“We were delighted to welcome Her Excellency Else Berit Eikeland to the centre and to showcase some of the high-impact research being carried out by our members,” said Professor Fitzgerald.
