What is it?
Creating Our Future is an opportunity for everyone in Ireland to give ideas on how to make our country better for all. From science, the environment, health and education to poverty, the arts, diversity and inclusion - all ideas are welcome that can inspire researchers to help make a better future for Ireland.
Why are we doing it?
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance and value of research and innovation in our lives. As a forward-thinking country, we must ask how research can help meet the opportunities and challenges facing our society over the coming years. Creating our Future opens up this question to all. Your ideas will inspire research projects that make a positive impact on our wellbeing.
What is the process?
Creating our Future is launched inviting people to tell us their ideas.
