Science Week 2021 will take place from the 7th – 14th of November. The focus of Science Week 2021 will be on a national conversation between the general public, the research community, and policymakers. This conversation will highlight the potential of existing scientific discoveries but, crucially, it will ask what challenges are most important to the Irish public and how science might help. Most importantly Science Week will aim to capture these challenges, or questions, as they arise from the public.  

Throughout Science Week there will be a variety of ways for you to get involved through events, interviews, social media and much more. You can also use and follow #ScienceWeek online.
