The Science & Society research group explores the relationship between science and society through a number of complementary research areas:
- Citizen Science
- Science Communication
- Higher Education Science
- Informal Science Learning
- Public Engagement with Science
Since 2014, the Science & Society research group has collaborated with researchers and organisations around the world, securing 20 separate research grants leading to more than 50 publications. The Science & Society research group is currently coordinating research projects funded by the European Commission, the Wellcome Trust, the Irish Research Council, Science Foundation Ireland, and Enterprise Ireland.
It is a multidisciplinary research group with members having backgrounds in education, history, neuroscience, classics, genetics, architecture, zoology, astrophysics, microbiology, engineering, geoscience, literature, philosophy, and biochemistry, among others.
