stream is the 'Science and the City' element. According to David Fahy, ESOF 2012 Director, this programme 'celebrates where creativity and great science meet and will provide scientific interchange opportunities between ESOF 2012 delegates and the general public.

Science in the City

'This Science in the City Festival will include a range of events that will excite the public and ESOF Delegates about science and technology, will tap into peoples' curiosity by engaging them at various levels. 'The innovative science themed programme which will take place throughout Dublin will consist of over 70 events over the ten days that bridge the ESOF meeting from the 6th to the 15th of July. Events include photographic and art exhibitions, several theatre pieces, film, tours, trails and treasure hunts, street performances, science buskers, large-scale interactive installations, experiments, science carnivals, public talks, debates, workshops and even a fashion show,' David concluded.

What is Life?

On Thursday, 12th July one of the landmark events of 20th Century science will be celebrated and reinterpreted for the 21st Century as part of the Science in the City programme of ESOF2012.

In February, 1943 one of the most distinguished scientists of the 20th Century, Erwin Schrdinger, delivered a seminal lecture, entitled 'What is Life?', under the auspices of the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, in Trinity College, Dublin. The lecture presented far-sighted ideas on how hereditary information could be encoded in a chemical structure (aperiodic crystal) in living cells. Schrdinger's book (1944) of the same title is considered to be a scientific classic. The book was cited by Crick and Watson as one of the inspirations which ultimately led them to unravel the structure of DNA in 1953, a breakthrough which won them the Nobel prize.

Such was the significance of the lecture at the time, that the then Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister),
