€40 million funding for North-South Research programme to deepen the links between higher education institutions & researchers.

Taoiseach Micheal Martin TD and Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD have today announced €40 million for a North-South Research programme.

This significant investment, provided through the Shared Island Fund, will support the deepening of links between higher education institutions, researchers and research communities on the island of Ireland.

Projects between two individual researchers based in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland could receive up to €100,000 per year for up to two years, while larger projects between North-South research teams and institutions could get up to €1m each year for four years.

The funding will be allocated following two calls for applications, the first before the end of this year, and the second round in the third year of the programme and it will be run by the Higher Education Authority.
