Lero supports other Education and Public Engagement activities.

Our public engagement programme focuses on demonstrating the value of investment in software research to the taxpayer and demonstrating that this investment is producing good outcomes for Ireland.

We attend public events such as :

We also support public engagement by enabling our PhD students to present and write about their work clearly through an annual doctoral symposium and writers’ retreat.   

Annual Doctoral Symposium

Lero PhD students have the opportunity to present their work at the annual doctoral symposium and receive feedback from an external review panel. The doctoral symposium also provides students with the opportunity to present their work to their colleagues. It helps students evaluate their progress in terms of their PhD progression but it is also a good opportunity for students to develop their communication skills.

Lero writers’ retreat

Lero PhD students have the opportunity to spend time off campus to focus and refine their writing skills during a writers’ retreat.
