Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) in collaboration with Teagasc, the Geological Survey of Ireland, the Marine Institute and the Environmental Protection Agency, is pleased to launch the SFI Investigators Programme 2016.

Posted on about 3 years ago by Laurentina Kennedy



The SFI Investigators Programme supports the development of world-class research capability and human capital in areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that demonstrably support and underpin enterprise competitiveness and societal development in Ireland. To this end, the Investigators Programme funds outstanding people with innovative ideas and strategic partnerships, recognising that excellence remains a paramount criterion. For this Programme, scientific excellence is both necessary and paramount but is not sufficient in isolation; applications must also be able to clearly articulate the potential for economic and societal impact.
