We are thrilled to announce that we have once again partnered with the Science Foundation of Ireland for our Science Writer of the Year category.

The Science Foundation of Ireland is dedicated to ensuring the continual growth of the scientific sector in Ireland. They work to create grants for individuals and organisations involved in STEM subjects with the aim of consolidating Ireland’s position as a global leader in the areas of scientific research and development.

Their funding aims to encourage research and development in key areas that will help to further basic understanding of broad bases of knowledge which provide the groundwork for further, more specialised research. They also fund specialised research into key scientific fields that are directed specifically to achieving a particular aim or objective and which, potentially, will have a commercial use.

By partnering with the Smedias they are highlighting their commitment to reporting on scientific and technological breakthroughs and news by student media.

If you’ve written an article about, or relating to, science or technology then we want to hear from you.
