This year building on Creating Our Future, we are concentrating on the themes that we know the public is concerned about such as sustainable living, mental health, and digital technologies. Science Week is a fantastic opportunity for people all over Ireland to discover and engage with science.”

RTÉ’s Head of Specialised Factual, Colm O’Callaghan said, “Given the uncertainty faced by global society, the infinite possibilities of science have never been more important.
