Maynooth University presents Research Week 2017, a celebration of research undertaken by our professors, lecturers, postdoctoral researchers and undergraduate and postgraduate students across all our faculties, institutes and centres.

Maynooth researchers are taking on some of the most pressing challenges facing society today. By collaborating with partners across the globe—and just across campus—our academics and their students bring a truly distinctive and dynamic inter-disciplinary approach to solving the thorniest of scientific, societal and thought-provoking questions.
