Ireland: you may have read works by some of their writers. Perhaps you've seen some of their dancers perform. Maybe you've grown up listening to some of their bands. But do you know their scientists?

This short film on Irish scientific achievements was produced by Dervalomedia on behalf of the Irish staff of the EU Joint Research Centre (JRC), Ispra, Italy. It was first shown at the JRC open day on May 4th, 2013 which was attended by Máire Geoghegan Quinn, European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science.
