Our Work

The mission of the RDS is to see Ireland thrive culturally and economically. We do this by working across five disciplines: science, the arts, agriculture, business and equestrianism; disciplines in which the RDS has an almost 300 year tradition of involvement and philanthropic support.

We believe that investment in the next generation is an investment in the future of Ireland, which is why much of our work programme is about encouraging, supporting and rewarding emerging potential. One of the key founding principles of the RDS was to share ideas, knowledge and new thinking for benefit of Irish society, something which our work programme proudly continues today.
