We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated.

DIFP Outreach work

On 26 October Kate also gave a DIFP outreach workshop to Dr Jennifer Redmond’s students at Maynooth University who are studying Ireland and post-war Britain.
