Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has welcomed a £5 million donation towards data analytics research at the Ulster University Magee campus. 

The donation was made by Mrs Angela Moore in memory of her husband Dr George Moore CBE who was a leading figure in the data analytics industry.

The Foyle MP said:

"I welcome this £5 million investment in data analytics which will help to establish Magee university as a centre of excellence in the field of data analytics.

“This will also see Dr Moore become an Honorary Graduate of Ulster University through the establishment of an endowed chair in his name to honour his significant contribution to data analytics. 

“The digital economy will be a key feature of the future and this investment will support some of the world leading research that is already ongoing at Magee while also supporting the overall expansion of the university as a key driver of the North West's Strategic Growth Plan.”
