With partner organisations working together under the Smart Futures umbrella, the framework proposes a series of strategic steps for better coordination of the delivery of STEM careers resources, to achieve a more effective means of evaluation and greater impact
Smart Futures is coordinated and managed by Science Foundation Ireland, in partnership with the Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme and it is supported by 200+ organisations from research and academia, as well as partners such as BioPharma Ireland, the Royal Society of Chemistry, ICT Ireland, the Irish Medical Devices Association (IMDA), the Institute of Physics, the American Chamber of Commerce and many other stakeholder groups.
The website offers resources to students, teachers, guidance counsellors and parents in Ireland and stimulate an interest in STEM subjects in secondary school and at third level.
