Ireland's Higher Education Institutes & Research Groups
Marine Research Capacity in the Higher Education Sector
In the Higher Education Sector, in excess of 70 research groups / teams, spanning across 12 Universities and 12 Institutes of Technology, carry out marine / marine-related research on the Island of Ireland. This includes researchers whose research focus is entirely marine and also teams who are engaged in marine-related research but whose research interests are wider (e.g. in more emerging areas of marine research such as marine biotechnology and marine technology). The following map provides an overview of these higher education institutions and links to the websites of individual research groups. Information on other North Atlantic Marine Research Centres/Groups can be accessed on the MarinERA/EurOCEAN website.
