On the 21st of January 2014, the UCD Science: Artists In Residence programme was officially launched by the University College Dublin (UCD).


The UCD Art in Science programme; an initiative that emerged following a research collaboration between Professor Lorraine Hanlon, UCD School of Physics, and artist Emer O Boyle; covers an artists' residency, an elective undergraduate module for UCD and NCAD students, and a programme of public engagement through exhibitions, performances, public talks and more.


UCD Art in Science has received a ten year commitment from the UCD College of Science towards encouraging high quality interdisciplinary practice, exploration and collaborative partnerships between artists and scientists, both student and professional, and to providing a platform for enhancing and developing the cultural life of the UCD community.
