Whitaker PhD Graduate talks about her postgraduate experience at NUI Galway

Ciara Fitzgerald joined the Whitaker Institute in 2008 to pursue doctoral research in the area of strategy processes in Technology Transfer Offices in the context of a National Innovation System. This research was significant in that it yielded findings of relevance to TTO directors, university management, and industry, and the study has public policy implications with regard to supporting the effective commercialisation of research emanating from higher education institutions to industry. Dr. Fitzgerald is currently employed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Quinn School of Business at University College Dublin. Read Ciara's full article entitled "My Postgrad Life" in the Irish Times special supplement from March 5th.
