JUST EAT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY NOW TV AS MAIN SPONSOR – DUBLINBIKES DOCKING STATIONS AT WESTERN WAY
[19 January 2021]
Irish cyclist and Tour De France green jersey winner, Sam Bennett, today officially launched the newly rebranded NOW TV dublinbikes which are hitting the streets of Dublin from this week. NOW TV was announced as the new sponsor of dublinbikes late last year as part of a three-year commercial partnership with Dublin City Council and JCDecaux.
Today’s launch also marks the arrival of a new NOW TV dublinbikes App which will enhance the user experience and make it easier than ever to use the service.
The new App provides lots more functionality for users making it easier than ever to get out there and enjoy the city. Users of the App can;
Simply Sign up and get cycling straight away Check live availability of bikes at stations Report any issues with the bikes Release a bike from a station Rate the bike they’ve just cycled Access their journey stats – all from their own phone.
Speaking at the launch, Sam Bennett, said: “I am delighted to team up with NOW TV to launch the arrival of the newly branded dublinbikes. One of my favourite things to do when visiting a new city is to get out on a bike and explore everything it has to offer so this partnership felt like an ideal fit for me. I think as a nation we have really embraced cycling during the lockdown and NOW TV dublinbikes are the perfect way to explore the city while enjoying some fresh air and exercise. The new App is simple to use and provides really useful information including checking availability at bike stations, planning your route via the map function and even unlocking a bike from your phone.”
Sarah Jennings, Marketing Director NOW TV, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with dublinbikes for the next three years and it’s very exciting to see NOW TV branded bikes on the streets of the city. The all new User Experience across both the new App and the website will make using the NOW TV dublinbikes scheme even easier. I’d like to thank Sam Bennett for joining us to virtually launch this important stage of our partnership and wish him the very best of luck in the season ahead.”
DUBLINBIKES DOCKING STATION 32 ON PEARSE STREET AT THE SCIENCE GALLERY DUBLIN
Some of the dates include below are in the past but this is the most recent description that i could find.
The Science Gallery Dublin is located within the Naughton Institute of Trinity College Dublin, which opened in early 2008. Prof. Mike Coey had championed the inclusion of gallery space in the Naughton Institute as a place to host exhibitions on science and talks. At its launch, Michael John Gorman was the gallery’s director and Lynn Scarff was Education and Outreach manager. Scarff subsequently served as director from 2014 to 2018. Ann Mulrooney was then appointed as director in December 2018.
The goal of the gallery is to host a programme of exhibitions, workshops, and events to engage people aged 15–25 with science and technology. Since its opening the Gallery has received funding and support from Google.
In 2011 the gallery attracted 242,000 visitors, in 2014 that had risen to 400,000, and has seen a total of 1.8 million visitors from 2008 to 2014. The gallery was featured on a limited edition 2015 An Post stamp, which was part of a series along with the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition, celebrating recent Irish scientific achievements.
The remit of the gallery has expanded over the years, with it now organising events such as TEDxDublin and Dublin Maker. Some of the exhibitions now travel internationally, with Illusion travelling to San Diego, and Biorhythm exhibited in Taiwan.
Science Gallery Dublin is now part of an international group – the Global Science Gallery Network – administrated by Science Gallery International (SGI), which has the aim of setting up eight similar galleries across the world by 2020, supported by Google and the Wellcome Trust. The first of which will be in London in collaboration with King’s College London, and is due to open in 2016. In 2014, the plans for a Science Gallery in Bangalore, India were announced, with the gallery planned to open in 2018, Science Gallery Melbourne with the University of Melbourne was announced in 2016. The SGI has an agreement to open a gallery with the City College of New York and in late 2016 announced Science Gallery Venice with Ca’ Foscari in Venice.
