MESTECH @ The Water Institute is leading in the area of autonomous marine sensor development. Using our multidisciplinary expertise in biosensors, optical sensors, microchip platforms, video imaging, image processing and information extraction, we create end-to-end, next generation, sensor technology systems for monitoring water quality. All sensors developed (phosphate sensor, nutrient sensor, algal toxin sensor, low cost optical sensor and an ecoli sensor) have been successfully deployed in the marine. The sensors hold potential for huge environmental impact, and successful commercialization.
The Awards take place on June 29th in Galway, as part of the Seafest Festival.
SeaFest, Ireland’s national maritime festival, takes place this year in Galway on Friday 30th of June to Sunday 2nd of July. SeaFest aims to increase participation and engagement with the sea.
