On 22 March 2018 the Council launched the second round of the Research Support Framework making €100,000 available for teachers and others engaging in and with educational research.
The Framework was re-named ‘The John Coolahan Research Support Framework’ to mark the immense contribution of Professor John Coolahan to the field of education at home and abroad. We were deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Professor Coolahan, the Father of Irish Education. His work, life and energy up to the end will be an inspiration for all who care about teaching, learning and research.
The closing date for the receipt of applications under round two of the framework was 5 June 2018. The applications received are currently being considered and it is envisaged that the successful applicants will be notified in December 2018.
