The Marine Institute’s joint acting chief executive Michael Gillooly recently spoke to Newsweek as part of its Country Report on Ireland alongside a number of this country’s political and business leaders.

Recognising Ireland’s robust economic performance in the five years preceding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Newsweek report on Ireland focuses on the country’s ambition and ability to navigate the economic challenges as a result of the pandemic in addition to the effects of Brexit.

Gillooly shares his thoughts on the Marine Institute’s efforts to promote research on Ireland’s rich maritime ecosystem and the reasons why our marine science research capabilities are significant on the international stage.

“We have an obvious geographical advantage in the marine sense. This allows us to use the country as a locus for Atlantic research, technology development and innovation,” he says.

“Ireland is described as an ideal place to innovate due to it being small enough to run tests, but large enough to demonstrate a significant impact.”
