What is Science Gallery International?
Following international recognition for the ground-breaking model of public engagement and education pioneered by Trinity College Dublin, Science Gallery International was established in 2012 with the aim of creating a global network of Science Gallery locations in partnership with leading universities and research centres in key urban locations. Led by Dr Michael John Gorman, Founding Director of Science Gallery Dublin, Science Gallery International is a registered charity headquartered in Dublin.
The Global Science Gallery Network was officially launched by Science Gallery International in 2012 with the support of a €1 million gift from Google.org. The Network is managed by Science Gallery International, and aims to incorporate eight university-linked Science Gallery nodes worldwide by 2020, engaging an audience of 2-4 million local visitors annually.
In 2012, King's College London signed an agreement to establish the first Science Gallery beyond Dublin at a spectacular site in the London Bridge quarter. Science Gallery International is also in discussions with New York, Bangalore and Melbourne about establishing hubs in those cities.
Our mission is to ignite creativity and discovery where science and art collide, through the development of an international network of science engagement activities inspiring young adults through exhibitions, educational workshops, training programmes and public events.
