Blogging for science

Readers of this blog may wish to note that the Director-General of Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Professor Frank Gannon, is now also a member of the blogging community. His blog can be read here.

The most recent post in his blog, ‘Belief and Science Policy‘, touches on some of the things that have been raised here also – in particular the assertions made about the effectiveness or otherwise of public expenditure on R&D.  His conclusion is similar to what I have also suggested. The blog is well worth a read (and you get accounts of experiences in  Latin America also).

And while I am at it, Frank Gannon’s predecessor as Director General of SFI, Bill Harris (now CEO of Science Foundation Arizona) has a page with his more recent speeches here. Some of these make reference to science policy in Ireland.
