DERI is a Centre for Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) established in 2003 with funding from the Science Foundation Ireland. After more than five years of operation DERI has become an internationally recognised institute in semantic web research, education and technology transfer which directly contributes to the Irish government's plan of transforming Ireland into a competitive knowledge economy. As a CSET, DERI brings together academic and industrial partners to boost innovation in science and technology, with its research focused on the Semantic Web. In the past five years DERI has developed into an internationally leading research centre, as documented by its large number of high-quality publications in core conferences, outnumbering any other research organisation world-wide in our field of research. DERI has acquired significant additional research funding from the European Union and Enterprise Ireland, rivalling the amount of the original CSET grant. DERI has attracted companies to set up subsidiaries in Galway, for example, Cyntelix, which provides the seed for the Silicon Valley inspired 'DERI Land', an eco-system of companies and research partners composed around DERI know-how and technologies, which intends to transform the region into a technological powerhouse. DERI's success over the last five years has also attracted further multi-national and local companies which expand its range of core industrial partners from Hewlett Packard to include Nortel, Cisco, Ericsson, IBM, Storm, and CelTrak.

The Insight Centre for Data Analytics was created to realise this vision. Insight is a joint initiative between University College Dublin, the National University of Ireland at Galway, University College Cork, and Dublin City University. Insight was established in 2013 by Science Foundation Ireland with funding of ¿75m.
