I-LOFAR: Exploring the low frequency radio universe from Ireland
The Irish LOFAR station (I-LOFAR) will not only bring Irish researchers to the forefront of astrophysics and ICT research, but will provide a platform for educational outreach in mathematics, physics, and technology to students of all ages. I-LOFAR will result in Birr becoming a leading E-Town, therefore enhancing the area’s reputation as an attractive location for ICT-based companies, and the accompanying visitor attractions will be pivotal in promoting science education and tourism in the Irish midlands. These are both strategic goals of the Irish Government's Rural Development Programme (2007-2013).
