Dr Sarah Cotterill

Dr Sarah Cotterill was recently awarded Runner-Up in the 2022 UCD Research Impact Case Study Competition. Her research explored how Ireland can conserve water, resulting in a policy brief and recommendations for An Fóram Uisce. Through a programme of outreach, including policy workshops and media appearances, Dr Cotterill is working to ensure these recommendations are translated into policy, so that we can save water and protect the environment. On winning the award, she said, “I’m delighted to have entered the case study competition as the opportunities that followed were superb. The impact masterclass was a fantastic experience, both in terms of the colleagues I met and in opening my eyes to the different ways that research can potentially make an impact.” The competition launches again for 2023 in the Spring.
