In the Idea Translation Lab (ITL) course, students will work at the boundaries of art, science & engineering to develop original ideas and projects where these disciplines meet.

Since 2011, Science Gallery Dublin has hosted an innovative cross disciplinary undergraduate course called Idea Translation Lab, which runs during the Hilary Term in Trinity College Dublin.  This course offers students from arts, humanities and science disciplines an opportunity to collaborate, and develop new innovative ideas where these disciplines meet and the potential to showcase their work on an international stage.  Initially developed as part of Science Gallery’s, EC FP7 project, Studiolab, with links to the ArtScience Prize and programmes developed by Prof David Edwards at Harvard University and Le Laboratoire, Paris, The Idea Translation Lab in 2016 was generously supported by The NTR Foundation.
