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 herd immunity, the future of tiny satellites, geoarchaeology 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.
