The Taoiseach Micheál Martin T.D. and Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris T.D., have announced funding for eight new research projects under the Shared Island strand of the Irish Research Council’s New Foundations programme.
The projects bring researchers North and South together to examine political, economic, civic and social cooperation and connection on the island of Ireland, and are funded by the Shared Island unit in the Department of the Taoiseach.
Professor Sheila O’Donohoe, South East Technological University is to establish a research partnership between two universities on the island of Ireland focused on sustainable finance solutions to tackle biodiversity loss. This partnership will work at the intersection of these two disciplines to make policy recommendations while strengthening North-South research links.

“Delighted to receive this funding along with Lisa Sheenan at Queens University, Belfast and look forward to working with all our regional stakeholders in the Ireland South East Financial Services Cluster and Funds Academy.”
