IEEE Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) is a vibrant community of engineers, scientists, and technical experts with member representation across the globe and throughout IEEE societies. It is a membership program to help students transition to young professionals within the larger IEEE community. IEEE young professionals are automatically added to the GOLD member community as they graduate.

The IEEE Sensors Council's purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of sensors carried out throughout the IEEE. The Council sponsors the annual IEEE Sensors Conference is responsible for the publication of the IEEE Sensors Journal. The Council's official field of interest is the theory, design, fabrication, manufacturing and application of devices for sensing and transducing physical, chemical, and biological phenomena, with emphasis on the electronics, physics and reliability aspects of sensors and integrated sensor-actuators. More information about the Sensors Council is available at www.ieee.org/sensors.

The MCCI vision is to increase export revenue and employment of microelectronics companies located in Ireland. MCCI will enable this vision by carrying out world-class industry-relevant circuit research developing a pool of IP and Skills relevant to these companies, thus giving them a competitive advantage.

MIDAS Ireland (Microelectronic Industry Design Association) is a joint Industry and Academic organisation that defines and develops the future direction of Research and Development for the Micro/Nano Electronics Industry in Ireland. It has active participation from Irish based Multi-Nationals and Indigenous Companies as well as the Universities active in research and the education of graduates for the industry. It works closely with State bodies to ensure the infrastructure and supports are in place to enable the sector to grow through new start-ups, more multi-nationals locating in Ireland and existing companies expanding, ultimately benefiting the Irish economy through increased jobs and exports.

OZ Optics Limited is the leading company in developing fiber optic sensors. 2009 Frost & Sullivan Award Winning sensor generates and measures stimulated brillouin scattering in optical fibers to provide high-resolution simultaneous measurements of both strain and temperature along the entire length of the fiber. By wrapping or embedding a standard telecom singlemode fiber inside a structure such as an oil pipeline, power lines or dam, users can detect when and where the structure is being strained or heated and correct the problem before failure occurs. It is ideal for monitoring large structures including oil & gas pipelines, bridges, power lines, dams, and security fences. The sensor could also be used in detecting fire and corrosion/erosion.

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) invests in academic researchers and research teams who are most likely to generate new knowledge, leading edge technologies and competitive enterprises in the fi elds of science and engineering underpinning three broad areas: * Biotechnology * Information and communications technology * Sustainable energy and energy-efficient technologies SFI makes grants based upon the merit review of distinguished scientists. SFI also advances co-operative efforts among education, government, and industry that support its fi elds of emphasis and promotes Ireland’s ensuing achievements around the world.
