NI Technology stand in Hanover gets royal visit

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York has given his support to the Industrial Development Board and the Industrial Research and Technology Unit (IRTU) in Germany where they were promoting Northern Ireland’s research and development capabilities at the world’s biggest technology fair.

Acting in his role of special representative in the UK for international trade and investment, the Duke paid a visit to the Northern Ireland Technology stand at CeBIT 2002 staged last week in Hanover. The prestige annual show attracts around 800,000 business people from more than 70 countries.

Promoted jointly by IDB and IRTU, the stand featured leading edge R&D work being undertaken at Queen’s University and the University of Ulster. Projects on display ranged from telecoms, speech processing, intelligent systems and control engineering to wireless communications, data mining and advanced materials, sensors and devices. (MB)
