First in a series of seminars exploring why evidence-based policy matters and how to harness the diverse expertise of Ireland’s researchers.

The creation of a new Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science and the foundational role of public health expert advice in managing the COVID-19 crisis make this the ideal moment to reimagine and strengthen the connections between research and public policy in Ireland. This seminar opens the series by outlining both the need and the exciting opportunities to better integrate the worlds of research and policy for the greater good.

Speakers:

  • Welcome: Mary Canning, President of RIA
  • Simon Harris TD, Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science
  • Professor Peter Clinch, Chair of SFI
  • Jane Grimson, MRIA, former Chair of HRB
  • Moderator: Jane Ohlmeyer, MRIA, Chair of IRC

About the Series:

Research for Public Policy

The Research for Public Policy seminar series is a joint initiative of the Royal Irish Academy (RIA) and the Irish Research Council (IRC). We aim to ignite important conversations about why evidence-based policy matters and how to harness the diverse expertise of Ireland’s researchers for the common good. We are committed to strengthening and sustaining relationships between researchers, policymakers, and research funders beyond the series, so that together we can build and implement a highly effective national framework for integrating relevant and cutting-edge research into policy development across Government. The time is now. We hope you will join us.
