Details on marine research projects funded / active during the lifetime of the MRIS are provided in this Research Database and are visually represented by the accompanying charts. The number of projects comprised in the database is indicated above the table and includes research projects varying in size from desk studies to large multi-annual projects. The database contains awards funded by national funding organisations that are members of the Marine Research Funders' Forum, including:
The database also contains internationally funded projects with Irish involvement e.g. Horizon 2020, Interreg. For projects funded by the European Commission, the database displays the total project grant-aid received by partners in the Republic of Ireland only.
For projects supported by co-financing from European Structural and Investment Funds, the appropriate national funder is displayed as the Lead Funder in the database. For further information on European co-financing of projects please contact the named Lead Funder.
The following charts provide a visual representation of the information contained in the database below. The charts present an overview of marine research projects funded by year, national/international funding, research theme, project size, funder and organisation type.
