Taichung Partners visit TURAS HQ

Professor Tien-Yin Chou (Jimmy) from GIS-FCU (Feng Chia University) and and Mei-Lin Yeh (Milly) from the SME SkyEyes, Taichung have just paid a flying visit to TURAS HQ in Dublin today. The morning was spent engaged in a work package 1 meetings, timed to co-incde with the submission of their key deliverable (1.1). Later, the UCD School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Policy hosted it's second GeoSAL GIS seminar at lunchtime. Dr Michela Bertolotto from UCD School of Computer Science & Informatics and Dr Mairtin Mac Siurtain from UCD School of Agriculture & Food Science presented some interesting applications of GIS in their research. Afterwards, our Taichung visitors were invited to engage in a Q&A session with seminar attendees. The afternoon was spent discussing future research and funding applications on a visit with Dr Raquel Cabral-Harper of the UCD Earth Institute. It was a busy day for all!
