Department of Education and Skills
Science Foundation Ireland
211. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the engagements he has had with Science Foundation Ireland in relation to its participation in the Department of Foreign Affair's’ Ireland House strategy; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [32057/20]
I have had discussions with Science Foundation Ireland in relation to their ambitions to develop their international footprint. In this regard I understand that the Ireland House approach to developing an overseas agency presence may be an appropriate model to utilise and I am interested to see these plans progress as part of our ongoing engagement with SFI.
