Prof Orla Feely is one of the recipients of the 2012 Science Foundation Ireland Principal Investigator Awards, for a project entitled "Nonlinear effects in circuits and systems: analysis, control and applications".  The award will support research into MEMS and energy harvesters within the Circuits and Systems Group from 2012 until 2016.  This is Prof. Feely's third SFI Principal Investigator Award.

Announcing the awards at a ceremony on June 29 2012, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said "Over the past decade, Ireland has built up a very substantial infrastructure and a reputation for basic scientific research, and many of the high-end jobs we have created in multinational and indigenous companies are directly related to these achievements."
