Science vital for our future

DUBLIN is hosting Europe's largest science conference, European Science Open Forum 2012. And to mark the event, Dublin has been declared the City of Science 2012.

It's a perfect coincidence that Dublin is hosting such a prestigious event days after the CERN discovery of the Higgs bosun. It is also a reminder how important science is for us all -- and for our economy.
