The Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) have this year partnered with the Irish Research Council (IRC) and Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) for a new research funding call. The 2016 IRC Society and Policy Call will include 3 geoscience specific projects;

  • Strand 4.3 Economic and public policy for the development of geothermal energy in Ireland (co-funded by IRC, GSI and SEAI)
Each project is a max of 24 months and €100,000. We strongly encourage social science researchers to apply for this call, preferably in partnership with geoscience researchers.
