This scheme actively supports schools to explore, synthesise, apply and share existing research.
Under the fifth round of the John Coolahan Research Support Framework, the Researchers in Residence Scheme (RiRS) for schools launched in January 2022. Through the RiRS, the Council actively supports schools or clusters of schools, partnered with researchers in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) over the course of the academic year 2022/2023 to explore, synthesise, apply, and share existing research.
Applications were accepted under round five of the RiRS from 20 January to 3 March 2022 and 52 applications were received by this date. 30 projects were selected for funding, and awards were made at an online event which took place on 26 May 2022.
