On March 8th, 2021, Dr Kevin Nolan, PORSAV PI at the University College Dublin placed second in the annual UCD Impact Case Study Competition. Kevin’s entry was based on PORSAV research and titled: Reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission in hospitals.
The annual UCD Research Impact Case Study Competition encourages researchers, of all disciplines, to write a case study that tells the story of how their work has made a positive difference. Despite the challenges of the year, UCD Research received more entries than ever before in 2020.
Commenting on the results, Vice-President for Research, Innovation and Impact at UCD Professor Orla Feely said: “The volume of entries we received last year is a testament to the high-impact work going on across the university and to our researchers’ dedication to making meaningful contributions to the world. Research at UCD continues to improve health and wellbeing, protect the environment, influence policy, stimulate economic growth, enrich people’s lives, and inspire the next generation.”
