Ireland’s Sci-Tech 100: A galaxy of science and technology stars

11 Dec 2015

Behold, in all its glory, the complete list of Ireland’s Sci-Tech 100, celebrating science and technology leaders in and from Ireland.

For the past two weeks, we have been highlighting leaders, influencers and stars of science and technology in and from Ireland in Ireland’s Sci-Tech 100.

Check out the complete list below, or scan through the various categories to read more about these remarkable people and their accomplishments.

This is a representative list of people who we feel deserve recognition for their great work, and what really struck us when publishing this was the sheer number of other great people who could have just as easily been included.

To that end, we’ll be publishing further lists in 2016, so be sure to watch this space!
