Science Calling will be interviewing Minister of State for Research and Innovation, Seán Sherlock, next Thursday (31 Jan). As part of this, I wanted to give you the opportunity to submit questions and topics that you would like me to ask Minister Sherlock.
Over the past few months there has been much unrest in the science community about science policy in Ireland. This led to The SciPol Impact series on this blog at the end of November last year. A number of different arguments about science policy in Ireland were presented through interviews and guest writers.
Minister Sherlock recently wrote a piece in the Examiner, Make Sure Science Keeps Its Spark, and as part of the Irish EU Presidency, he is addressing the European Parliament Committee on Industry, Research and Energy about Horizon 2020 in Brussels today.
Now you have the opportunity to put your points to the Government. Please comment below if you would like to submit questions or topics about either Irish or European science policy.
