Smart Futures is coordinated and managed by Science Foundation Ireland, in partnership with the Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme and is supported by 50+ organisations from research and academia, as well as partners such as BioPharma Ireland, the Royal Society of Chemistry, ICT Ireland, the Irish Medical Devices Association (IMDA), the Institute of Physics, the American Chamber of Commerce and many other stakeholder groups. 

This website aims to provide STEM career resources to students, teachers, guidance counsellors and parents in Ireland and stimulate an interest in STEM subjects in secondary school and at third level.

Read about Science Foundation Ireland's research on what influences a student's study and career choices (2014). 

The Smart Futures Strategy 2014-16 sets out the aims and objectives of the programme.
