A National Conversation on Research in Ireland

We would like to thank everyone throughout the country who submitted ideas to Creating Our Future. The Expert Committee and Working Groups now begin the task of analysing the data, to ensure that the findings reflect the public’s voice and recommendations are developed to inspire research in Ireland.

What is it?

Creating Our Future provided 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 inclusions – all ideas submitted will help to inspire researchers to 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 wanted to ask how research can help meet the opportunities and challenges facing our society over the coming years. Creating our Future provided an opportunity for everyone to have a voice. The ideas submitted by the general public will inspire research projects that will make a positive impact on our lives.
