GSI Griffith Awards 2018
aim of the GSI Griffith Geoscience Awards is to provide teaching cover
and support to allow excellent researchers to pursue novel research
ideas and advance pioneering scientific discoveries. It is expected that
the research outputs will be ambitious; projects moving into new areas
of research or developing new synergies with other disciplines/area of
expertise will be prioritised. Proposals should include either proof of
concept studies for a novel and innovative research idea or application
of existing expertise in a new area of research.
outputs should help build expertise and capacity, increase research
impact and improve the quality and sustainability (through
diversification) of geoscience research in Ireland.
envisaged that all research funded under the Griffith Geoscience Awards
will lead to an extended programme of research and development in the
areas funded. It is also expected that the research to be undertaken is
not currently being funded by other research funding agencies (either
due to exclusion of the specific topic or the high risk/high gain nature
of the research).
GSI aims to support groundbreaking research in the following areas:
- Remote sensing and Earth Observation
- Earth resources (including water)
- Marine geoscience
- Artificial Intelligence/machine learning for geoscience data
