Between 19-26th October 2017, Maynooth University held its first ever Research Week as part of its 20th Anniversary Celebrations.  With over 30 events held on and off campus, and drawing more than 800 attendees on campus (and 1,000 more over Twitter livestreams), the week was a roaring success and no doubt will become a staple on the University’s events calendar for years to come.  The week afforded academics, students, and the public to engage with the vast range of truly inspiring and ground-breaking work being undertaken across the three faculties: Science and Engineering; Arts, Philosophy and Celtic Studies; and Social Sciences. Events ranged from the Three-Minute Thesis Competition by post-graduate students, Thinks and Drinks in Brady’s Pub on the subject of Free Will, Ignite (rapid Powerpoint) competition, Inaugural Professorial Lectures, SPUR (undergraduate research) presentations, and range of symposia, workshops and sharing of the research breadth and depth that is flourishing at Maynooth University.
