The theme of Trinity Week 2019 is Silence, but We think Children Should be Seen and Heard!

Join Us!

Trinity Research in Childhood Centre (TRiCC) seeks to promote and integrate research related to children and young people across all three faculties of Trinity College Dublin AND the Children's Research Network.

Come celebrate such research as well as children in general.

Research Showcase: 29th April - 3rd May

Throughout the week of 29th April – 3rd May, the Arts Building concourse will be covered with posters, pop-up stands and other display material celebrating children and children’s research both across Trinity College Dublin, and the Children's Research Network of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which has its home in TRiCC.

Vote for your favourite poster!

From 29th April - noon on 1st May, we will be asking people to vote either in person or online for the poster they believe captures the spirit of the event. On the afternoon of 1st May, prizes will be awarded for the two most-voted-for posters.
