Creating Our Future is a Government of Ireland campaign to stimulate a national conversation that generates ideas from the public to inform the direction of research in Ireland.
Anyone, anywhere can have an idea that inspires research. It could be based on an opportunity or challenge that someone has identified in their own life, for their community, for Ireland or for the world. Or it could be based on a topic that someone is curious or passionate about. The campaign wants to hear them all – whatever facet of life they relate to.
From now until the end of November, the campaign will be reaching out to engage people, groups and communities in our events and activities. Central to this is working with community and voluntary organisations across the country to activate and engage with their members and the wider public in the campaign to capture their ideas.
Science Foundation Ireland would like to invite you to a virtual Community Activation event for Creating Our Future
This virtual Community Activation Event will provide you with an opportunity to hear more about:
