What a remarkable boost in funding research in Ireland! Irish science gets historic €300-million boost: http://www.nature.com/news/irish-science-gets-historic-300-million-boost-1.12499
"Funded areas include data analytics, marine renewable energy,
biomaterials, perinatal research, nanotechnology, functional foods,
photonics and drug synthesis. Roughly one-third of the funding for
the new centres, which are to run for six years, is expected to come
from around 150 industry partners through cash and in-kind
contributions. “This is the largest single research announcement to
date in Ireland in terms of people and projects,” says Mark Ferguson,
director general of Science Foundation Ireland, which will distribute
the state funding. “As a small country we cannot do everything well, and
these are areas where we see Ireland has the capability to build scale
and excellence and have an economic and societal impact.” "
