QUESTOR Funded Projects

The QUESTOR Centre (, based in Queens University, Belfast, is an exciting and dynamic international environmental research co-operative that serves a select membership made up of environmental regulators and environmentally responsible companies, ranging in size from large multi-national corporations to forward looking SMEs. QUESTOR provides member organisations with a highly focused research programme, delivered by a multi-disciplinary staff at world class environmental institutions. In 2005, DCU became a partner of the QUESTOR Centre and there are currently 12 research projects funded and championed by QUESTOR industrial members at DCU. These projects are supporting PhD students and in a range of subject areas such as sensing, water treatment, resource management and visual sensing. For more information contact
