Calmast - Centre for the Advancement of Learning of Maths, Science and Technology
Calmast is working with Waterford City Council, Waterford County Council, industry groups and schools to develop the Southeast with Waterford as its Gateway City as a Science Region.
Calmast was established in 2003 at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) allowing Sheila Donegan and Eoin Gill to continue and develop the work they had been doing since the mid 1990s in promoting science and engineering. In that time they have reached hundreds of thousands of people with science supplements and publications and over a hundred thousand at events and activities.
Calmast directors are the only Irish recipients of the Descartes Award for Science Communication and were awarded the Engineers Ireland inaugural Award for Science, Engineering and Technology Awareness in 2007
