Research Support Framework

The John Coolahan Research Support 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.
  • 18 projects were awarded funding under the second round of the framework in 2018.
  • 24 projects were awarded funding under the third round of the framework in 2019.
  • 25 projects were awarded funding under the fourth round of the framework in 2020.
