UCD Geary Research Day 2018
On Thursday December 13th 2018 we held a Research Day at Geary to exhibit the depth and breadth of ongoing research at the Geary Institute. Over 20 Geary fellows and their colleagues made short presentations outlining their research, and PhD students based at Geary showed posters of their own work. This was a great opportunity to see the extensive range of policy-oriented research that is being conducted at Geary.
