Our pop-up festival returns on 29th September 2017 with a packed programme of talks, experiments, comedy and workshops showcasing the best of Irish research.

Have you ever wondered how the study of video games can lead to research breakthroughs in crowd psychology? Or how bees communicate with each other? At PROBE: Research Uncovered at Trinity College Dublin, visitors will get an up-close look at the fascinating work being carried out by Irish researchers, and how it’s helping to solve some of society's biggest problems.

In Trinity’s historic Front Square, the diverse world of academic research will be laid bare with live experiments, exclusive performances, interactive workshops, stand-up comedy and storytelling sessions guiding visitors through the study of vaccines, the future of tiny satellites, artificial intelligence and much, much more.

PROBE, a collaboration between Trinity College Dublin and Science Gallery Dublin, is part of European Researchers’ Night, taking place in cities across the continent on 29th September.
