The National Centre for Sensor Research

The National Centre for Sensor Research (NCSR) is a world-renowned, large scale, multidisciplinary research facility focused on the science and applications of chemical sensors and biosensors. The centre hosts 25 Principal Investigator members from the Faculty of Science and Health at Dublin City University. Membership includes over 80 post doctoral researchers and almost 120 post graduate students. The NCSR hosts its researchers in a number of facilities located across the DCU campus including, the Research and Engineering Building, the Chemistry Building, the Physics Building and the Albert College. The dispersed nature of these locations presents difficulties for regular interaction between NCSR researchers, both professionally and socially.

As a means of encouraging cohesion within the NCSR, the United National Centre for Sensor Research (UNCSR) Society, was established to promote communication between Academics, Principal Investigators, Post–Doctoral and Post-Graduate researchers from within the NCSR. It is envisaged that the UNCSR will provide a platform for NCSR members to showcase their research through organised events, for example, seminars and workshops. The UNCSR will also strive to strengthen a sense of community and belonging within the NCSR, by hosting social events and embracing the various cultures that comprise the NCSR.
