Main funder: Science Foundation Ireland’s Discover Programme

Science Foundation Ireland is the national foundation for research in Ireland. It advances co-operative efforts among education, government and industry that support its fields of emphasis and promotes Ireland’s reputation for science and engineering research.

The Discover Programme aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public.


Funder: WellcomeWellcome Trust

Thanks to continued funding from Wellcome we’re running zones on biomedical engineering in I’m an Engineer Ireland.

Wellcome are dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in human and animal health. They support the brightest minds in biomedical research and the medical humanities. Wellcome’s public engagement grants are intended to promote interest, excitement and debate around science and society. With this grant we hope to show that engineering is not just about Maths and Physics. Biology and Chemistry play a very large part too.

In March 2017, Wellcome are funding the Health Zone.
