The Geological Survey collaborates with several national and international research groups, agencies and organisations. Our various programmes also carry out research. We provide research funding for geoscientists through a number of mechanisms. This is all supported by our Research roadmap.  

​This section highlights all the research carried out by staff in the Geological Survey.

​Details about current open calls and recently closed calls.

The Research Roadmap is an outline strategy and implementation plan to deliver the Research programme.
