SFI St Patrick’s Day Science Medal

SFI St Patrick’s Day Science Medal

The annual Science Foundation Ireland St Patrick’s Day Science Medal competition is a national recognition of the achievements of a distinguished Irish scientist, engineer or technology leader living and working in the USA. The medal is traditionally awarded by the Taoiseach in Washington D.C. as part of the official St. Patrick’s Day programme.

The medal recognizes individuals who are not only outstanding in their fields of expertise but who also have demonstrably assisted researchers in Ireland in either academia or industry – via mentorship, supervision, collaboration, industrial development, entrepreneurship or who have made significant contributions to developing the research ecosystem in Ireland. Last year’s recipients were Prof Margaret Murnane of the University of Colorado at Boulder and Mr David McCourt, Founder and CEO, Granahan McCourt Capital.
