25 Irish leaders who are top of the sci-tech world

Mon, 12/12/2016

Prof Séamus Davis is among 25 Irish leaders who are top of the science and technology world as recently named by SiliconRepublic.com. 

When we first launched Ireland’s Sci-Tech 100 in 2015, we were struck by the number of sci-tech luminaries from Ireland who were working abroad. At the time, we highlighted just a small selection of our globetrotting ambassadors.  Throughout 2016, a centenary year commemorating Ireland’s first steps as an independent republic, we, as a nation, have been reflecting on what it means to be Irish. Emigration has been a major part of Ireland’s history, and the great Irish diaspora is known the world over.

What better way to end this tumultuous year than with a tribute to 100 inspiring Irish émigrés putting this small country at the top in terms of science and technology. These first members of the 2016 Sci-Tech 100 represent Ireland at the world’s biggest names in science and technology, and we have many more to follow.  To read the entire SiliconRepublic.com article, click here.
