Our Research Programme was launched in 2016 and is supported by the Research Roadmap (pdf); this is an outline strategy and implementation plan to deliver the programme. The roadmap outlines
our commitment to supporting excellent geoscience research. Our goal is
to build capacity and develop a network of excellent geoscience
researchers who will help address three of the key challenges facing
(i) Sustainability and management of Earth resources (including groundwater),
(ii) Risk mitigation for geological hazards (including geotechnical hazards) and
(iii) Public perception of geosciences & citizen science
We supports researchers in academia and industry and
will continue to develop these relationships further through our roles
as a research funder, collaborator and performer. These activities will be strengthened by development of appropriate tools and methodologies to address the challenges facing us. We expect these
partnerships and support systems to positively impact our economy and
our society through better understanding of Earth systems.
The Research Roadmap is also available as gaeilge (pdf).
