Royal Irish Academy Public Discourse Series

22 August 2017

We are delighted to sponsor a series of talks hosted by the Royal Irish Academy on Dawson Street, Dublin 2. The Royal Irish Academy is Ireland’s premier learned body. Founded in 1785, the Academy promotes, sustains and helps communicate the benefits of research. It is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest Academic honour in Ireland. 

At each discourse, an expert will present on a topic relevant to their field of interest.

The first discourse took place on Tuesday 12 September with guest speaker Professor Mary McAleese MRIA. You can find details on this event on the RIA website here
