Impact-2030

Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris has launched 'Impact 2030: Ireland’s Research and Innovation Strategy'.

The purpose of the new national strategy is to ensure that Ireland’s investment in research and innovation makes as big a difference as possible to as many people as possible.

 The strategy will foster greater engagement among a wide range of stakeholders including research organisations, the tertiary education system, enterprise, public policymakers, civic society organisations and European partners. It is hoped that Impact 2023 will build a more inclusive and engaged research and innovation system that is recognised as integral to addressing major societal issues ranging from climate change to health and wellbeing.

Speaking at the launch, Minister Harris said 'The fundamental driver of Impact 2030 will be making a real difference for all people across Ireland and beyond. We will create an inclusive research and innovation system delivering the solutions for Irish society and our economy, solving our common challenges through teamwork, and enhancing our reputation'.
