Research Support Framework

Applications are currently being accepted under the third round of the John Coolahan Research Support Framework.

The Framework offers support to teachers and others conducting new research, or sharing, synthesising or applying existing research in their practice, either independently or in collaboration with others. The Framework forms a key part of the Council’s CROÍ Research Series (Collaboration and Research for Ongoing Innovation) which places a strong emphasis on research activities which strengthen the links between research, policy and practice, and on collaboration among teachers, and between teachers and other stakeholders in education. 

33 projects were awarded funding under the first round of the framework in 2017 and 18 projects were awarded funding under the second round in 2018. Further information on previous rounds of the framework is available below.

 The current round of the framework was launched on 1 May 2019 and applications will be accepted until 3pm on Thursday 20 June 2019.
