On Wednesday, April 13th, The Whitaker Institute for Innovation and Societal Change, NUI Galway will be holding it’s annual research day. The Whitaker Institute Research Day is an opportunity for researchers and policy makers from across multiple disciplines to meet and discuss how the multi-perspective research of the Institute, on a range of social and economic issues, can promote a more sustainable and inclusive society. The research day will involve a series of talks in the Hardiman Research Building and a poster display of on-going Institute research in the Hardiman foyer.

The day is divided up into 5 main sessions. The first morning session sees each cluster of the Whitaker Institute give a quick presentation on their research and how it advances the three key research themes of the Institute; Sustainable and Inclusive Societies, Public-Sector Innovation and Reform and Business, Innovation & Economic Development. The other sessions throughout the day will see Whitaker researchers presenting some of the key ongoing projects of the Institute in more detail.

As well as researchers from the Whitaker Institute presenting on the day we are particularly pleased to welcome Prof. John Fitzgerald, Chair of Advisory Council on Climate Change who will speak on moving to a low carbon Irish economy and Orlaigh Quinn, Head of Expenditure Policy and Reporting & Government Reform Unit in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, who will take part in a panel discussion on information management in the public sector.
