Tipp groups encouraged to get involved

An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, T.D. and Science Foundation Ireland are calling on businesses, communities and professionals in Tipperary to take part in Science Week 2016 from 13-20 November.

To meet increasing public demand and to ensure there is a variety of events around the country to attend, Science Week 2016 is set to be the biggest yet.

Encouraging everyone in Tipperary to get involved, Director of Strategy and Communications for Science Foundation Ireland, Dr. Ruth Freeman said; “I am delighted that every year so many organisations are enthusiastically involved in Science Week. But this year, we want even more people in Tipperary to come on board! It’s important that people understand how the world and technology around them works. Globally and here in Ireland, we face big challenges requiring solutions that are driven by technology and innovation. To create these solutions, we need talented and innovative people. We are naturally a creative and curious nation; let’s tap those attributes to ensure we are ready for what’s next.”
