Irish research council reports on ‘one of busiest years to date’

Almost 1,400 researchers benefited from the €33.7 million spent by the Irish Research Council in 2015, according to the council’s annual report.

The report, published on 21 July, says that about €30m came from the state, leveraging about €3.7m from other sources. Of the almost 1,400 researchers who were funded, 1,147 were at postgraduate level and 249 at postdoctoral level. There were 81 projects run with enterprise partners and another 41 with civic society groups.

It added up to “one of our busiest years to date”, said Jane Ohlmeyer, the council’s chairwoman. Since its establishment in 2012, the council has funded almost 6,500 researchers, she said.
