Round One of the Research Support Framework

Applications for the second round of the Research Support Framework will be accepted until 12 p.m., 5 June 2018. Further information is available here.

In 2017, the Teaching Council awarded 33 bursaries, totalling €100,000, to teachers and others engaging in and with educational research. The funding was awarded under the first round of the Council’s Research Support Framework. The framework is a key element of the Council’s CROÍ Research Series (Collaboration and Research for Ongoing Innovation).

This framework fosters and promotes learning by supporting a range of approaches, including practitioner research, and the application of an enquiry-based approach to practice. It places a strong emphasis on research activities which will strengthen the links between research, policy and practice, and on collaboration among teachers, and between teachers and other stakeholders in education.
