The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking proposals from the research community to help identify solutions to climate change and other emerging and complex environmental problems.

With up to €10.2 million available for new research projects, to be awarded in 2019 and 2020, the research call is divided into three strands: Climate & Air, Environmental Sustainability, and Water.

The Research Call highlights the importance of a clean, healthy and well-protected environment for our health, our wellbeing and our quality of life.

Managed by the EPA and funded by the Government through the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, the research call is designed to support the implementation of environmental policies in Ireland.

Innovative research proposals are invited in response to 40 research topics.

The new research projects are expected to start in late 2019/early 2020 and will range from 12-month to multi-annual research projects.

Further details about the 2019 EPA Research Calls are available on the EPA website.
