Ireland's new Minister for Enterprise, Jobs, and Innovation says that science will remain an integral part of the government's policy, though with a more commercial bend, reports Nature's The Great Beyond blog. "We will be looking afresh at science strategy in the context of a jobs program," said Richard Bruton, the new minister, at a press conference. Bruton added that research would still be an important aspect of the policy. "Rebuilding Ireland's international reputation for excellence in science and technology will be crucial to achieving growth and getting people back to work," he added, according to the Irish Times.
