Designs for Learning

Initiated in 2011, Science Gallery, the NDRC and Inventorium bring together their shared skill sets and networks in an initiative to identify Ireland’s next educational entrepreneur. Designs for Learning is a competition open to students as well as members of the public, inviting them to submit ideas they felt could transform how we learn in Ireland. Ideas could be a product, service or sustainable business proposal, digital or non-digital, which would bridge formal and informal learning. Selected finalists receive seed funding to develop their idea and finalists and pitch their ideas to a panel for the chance to win funding and mentoring support to realise the winning idea/s.
