Helping Ireland Recruit and Retain Research Groups
Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) invests in academic researchers and research teams who are most likely to generate new knowledge, leading edge technologies and competitive enterprises in the fields of science and engineering underpinning three broad areas:
- Biotechnology (BIO)
- Information and communications technology (ICT)
- Sustainable energy and energy-efficient technologies (ENERGY)
SFI makes grants based upon the merit review of distinguished scientists.
SFI also advances co-operative efforts among education, government, and industry that support its fields of emphasis and promotes Ireland’s ensuing achievements around the world.
