Public Engagement

The Academy runs an annual programme of public outreach and engagement events across the spectrum of our activities.


We believe that the best research should also be available to the public. We run a wide range of free events throughout the year

Check out our latest events

Many of our talks and other events are freely available to watch back online. We promote this research to introduce Irish and international experts to the public.


We offer an independent trusted space for robust and respectful discourse bringing together academia, government, civil society, and the private sector. We draw on the knowledge and expertise of our members and our research initiatives to shape and contribute to policy debates.  We represent Irish research in national and international scholarly networks and contribute to international scientific exchange and policy discussion

Multidisciplinary Work

Our research is primarily focussed around 12 areas in the Humanities and Sciences.
