Ideas to inspire future research projects in 16 areas from culture to sustainability, mental health and housing, identified by the public.
Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris has today published the outcomes from Creating Our Future, a unique national brainstorm that received more than 18,000 ideas on how to create a better society.
The diverse breadth of public submissions on where research should be focused ranged from ideas on the environment, mental health, food and sustainable and green living, to housing, health, the arts, digital challenges, learning and development, and nurturing community.
The campaign asked the Irish public to submit research ideas based on a flexible, open-ended question: ‘Tell us your idea for what researchers in Ireland should explore to create a better future?’
Minister Harris publishes over 18,000 ideas from national brainstorm, Creating Our Future. “The campaign was open to everyone, and I am glad to say we received research ideas from every county in the country.”https://t.co/Bmsz4iMVlg#CreatingOurFuture@SimonHarrisTD @scienceirel pic.twitter.com/GU7qnFmlNe
