Trinity College Dublin said:
"Following on from a hugely successful series in 2014-15, the second series of First Up lunchtime talks will again feature the creative minds at the forefront of Irish culture, science and the arts. The unique individuals in the First Up series believed in an idea and did everything possible to make that idea work. They invested in their own talent and creativity in order to create a career or lifestyle suited to their vision and personal aspirations. First Up is a collaboration based at Trinity College Dublin between the Science Gallery Dublin and the Trinity Long Room Hub."
