Cuireann Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann an taighde chun cinn. Tugaimid aitheantas do scoth taighdeoirí na hÉireann.

Creidimid gur gá an dea-thaighde a chur chun cinn, a chothú agus a chur in iúl don phobal. Comhairle dá chuid ball a reachtálann an tAcadamh.

John Bell Day

Help us make John Bell the best known scientist in Northern Ireland

On 4 November 1964 John Bell (1928-1990) from Tate’s Avenue, Belfast changed the world of science by laying the foundation stone for quantum computing with his quantum theory. Since November 2014, Belfast has celebrated John Bell Day. We want to make John Bell a role model for the young people of Northern Ireland; to inspire them to see education and science as a route by which they can fulfil their greatest ambitions like Bell did.

Our aims for John Bell Day

• John Bell Statue for the new Belfast Transport Hub
• John Bell Education Pathway Bursary Scheme
