The organisers have now launched a new website (www.robertboyle.ie) to promote and accompany the festival.
The festival is particularly timely given that 2011 marks the 350th anniversary of the publication of Robert Boyle’s famous scientific paper entitled, “The Sceptical Chymist”. This document set the scene for the establishment of the academic topic we now call the Chemical Sciences. 2011 is also the International Year of Chemistry.
More details on the programme of events for the festival can be found in our earlier post and at the festival website.
