At UCD Institute for Discovery, we want to make it as easy as possible for our researchers to access funding to drive their research forward.

Significant funding is available, from a wide range of sources, but it is not always easy to find, and applications can be time-consuming.

The funding pages of the UCD Institute for Discovery website are designed to link researchers both with sources of funding, and the supports which exist in UCD Institute for Discovery and elsewhere. Coordinating the excellent research activity in the institute with relevant funding agencies, and helping researchers present their cases for funding is the key aim of the office of the Grants Coordinator.

Feel free to browse the funding pages to see the types of funding available and the local supports for researchers.

You can contact me at any time if you have a query.

I can be reached by email which I check on a daily basis, or if you prefer, you can drop in to my office for a chat, E0.96 (O'Brien Centre for Science Ground Floor)
