Commenting on the launch of Impact 2030: Ireland’s Research and Innovation Strategy, by Minister of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris, TD, Prof Philip Nolan, Director General of SFI said: “We warmly welcome the publication of Impact 2030 as announced by Minister Harris this morning. It is ambitious and underscores Government's commitment to excellence in research and innovation because of their pervasive benefits for our society, economy and ecosystem. The big challenges that face us as a society can only be addressed if we have the very best in research, talent and expertise, and work together across disciplines and society to find solutions. This principle is at the core of this new national strategy: future wellbeing of our society depends on it.”
