NUIGalway Innovation Prof. Chris Curtin, VP for Innovation and Performance.

For the past three years, I have had the privilege as the VP for Innovation and Performance to engage in the world of new ideas and innovation. This activity combined with the success of a thriving research community at NUI Galway has led to a campus that is growing Ireland's innovation profile. Innovation brings about positive change for our campus and my hope is that Innovation continues to thrive, impact and excite this campus, the local community and our country.
