Science Foundation Ireland's Education and Public Engagement programme seeks to promote the awareness and engagement of the Irish public with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).  This supports one of the four primary objectives outlined in the SFI Strategic Plan - Agenda 2020, to have the most engaged and scientifically informed public.

Motivated by this objective, the Lero Education and Public Engagement strategy is:

  • To train future software practitioners through interventions at all levels of the educational system
  • To engage with and open a dialogue with the public through Lero research

Our EPE programme contains three pillars: Software in Education; Engaged Research; and, Software for All.
