The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Engineers Ireland have launched a new partnership to foster STEM skills development in Ireland.

The strategic partnership between Ireland’s independent public body responsible for the protection and improvement of our environment and the professional membership body for engineers in Ireland will focus on encouraging and inspiring the next generation of STEM talent by collaborating on the Engineers Ireland STEPS programme. This programme is the only national full-time STEM outreach programme with a focus on engineering.
