The associationís membership is drawn from all disciplines and sectors including biology, ecology, microbiology, engineering, chemistry and law (from professors to environmental consultancies to waste management companies to amateur naturalists!).
The ESAI provides a network for people working in the environmental area, encourages a better scientific understanding of environmental issues, promotes good environmental practice and provides an expert platform for environmental issues in Ireland and abroad.
Since its inception the association has been strongly connected with the Irish environmental research community and organises the largest environmental research conference in Ireland each year (Irish Environmental Researchers Colloquium or Environ). This is the associationís main networking event each year.
The association is growing steadily and relies entirely on volunteers to organise events and produce ESAI documents. Modest membership fees largely cover the production of the newsletter, correspondence with members and help prime other association activities. The future of the association will ultimately depend on the membership - we welcome and encourage your input and help.
