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.
End of November 2021
All ideas need to be submitted before this deadline.
Our panels of research experts review all ideas submitted and begin to prepare a report for Government.
A report is submitted to Government with your ideas to inspire future research in Ireland.
The Expert Committees will have been collecting your ideas and begun formulating the Creating Our Future report. The public symposium will bring together representatives from all walks of Irish life to discuss the work of the expert committees.
