A Dublin-based market leader for post-trade automation solutions to the global securities services industry will contribute more than €1 million over a five-year period to research at NUI Galway.
The contribution by Information Mosaic will go towards the management of agile and lean systems development in the Enterprise Agility group at the Centre for Innovation and Structural Change (CISC ) at the university.
The Enterprise Agility group aims to build and maintain an international network of excellence around the management of agile and lean development with NUI Galway at the hub of this network.
Dr Kieran Conboy, leader of the Enterprise Agility group, says it is significant, close-knit engagement and collaboration with industry partners such as Information Mosaic that can make this goal a reality.
The partnership will involve a close working relationship between Information Mosaic and the Enterprise Agility group, including hosting of researchers, joint delivery of seminars, co-authoring of papers, and placement of NUI Galway students to work with the eight Information Mosaic staff dedicated to the project.
Declan Costello, the CTO of Information Mosaic, says its collaboration with NUI Galway will help it better implement agile and lean methods in its own company and provide an opportunity to be thought-leaders.
Dr Conboy referred to the key role that Dr Meghann Drury, a postdoctoral researcher, has played in creating this collaboration.
“Since joining our group in February Meghann has developed strategic links with a number of companies such as Information Mosaic and it is great to see that her early research has led to such a large scale industry investment.”
The Enterprise Agility group includes a team of 20 academic staff at NUI Galway together with five postdoctoral researchers and 12 existing doctoral students at the School of Business and Economics, the School of Law, the School of Psychology, Centre for Research on Occupational and Life Stress and Digital Enterprise Research Institute and is supported by funding of more than €4.2 million.
