The Maynooth Education Forum is intended as an opportunity for reflection and exchange of ideas among policymakers and key stakeholders. Hosted by Professor Philip Nolan, President of Maynooth University, this Forum has become an annual platform for open and honest dialogue, stimulating debate, generating ideas and making a lasting contribution to the future of educational thinking and reform in Ireland.    

Established in 2013, the Maynooth Education Forum is a unique event on the education policy landscape in Ireland. The Education Forum is not an academic conference – rather, it is an open space where an invited group of around eighty education policymakers and stakeholders come together once a year to exchange ideas and reflect on key issues in education.
