DIAS 2020 – Marking 80 Years of Discovery

For 80 years DIAS has been tackling big research questions to gain insights to Celtic society and its legacy, to progress our understanding of our planet and the universe, and to decipher the underpinning mathematical principles of nature.

To mark our 80th Anniversary in 2020 we have developed a programme of public and academic events around four themes that relate to the work being carried out within our schools and sections. The themes are:

Reaching for the stars Exploring worlds through words Quantum, Infinity and beyond

Our current work includes:

› Developing new technology a and software for space missions,

› Underpinning sustainable global development by advancing our understanding of earth system change and the deep structure of the earth

› Advancing the unification of gravity and quantum physics, including consideration of the nature of spacetime; contributing to the optimisation of transmission of quantum information (quantum computing)

› Providing a virtual library of unique medieval manuscripts from the 6th to the 19th Centuries, through the Irish Script on Screen (ISOS) initiative, to enable global access and insights to Celtic identity, language, society and legacy.

The programme will be uploaded shortly. A full listing can be found under events.
