Three NUI Galway academics were among the recipients of the Royal Irish Academy (RIA) Charlemont Grant Awards, which were presented at a special ceremony in Academy House in Dublin recently.

Funded by the Academy, the Charlemont Grants are designed to act as a career springboard to assist scholars in strengthening their international mobility and developing international collaborative networks. These are small grants, with high impact, and are complimentary to larger programmes offered by other funders including the Irish Research Council and Science Foundation Ireland.

The NUI Galway recipients were: Dr Bronagh McShane, Moore Institute; Dr Lindasy Ann Reid, English; and Dr Emily Porter, Lambe Institute for Translational Research.

Grants are available for short visits to any country to support primary research in any subject area. The duration of visits is generally between one week and six weeks in length, the key objectives being to initiate one-to-one collaborations, explore opportunities to build lasting networks and gain access to ideas, research facilities, and complementary equipment. Funds are available to facilitate initial project planning and development; to support the direct costs of research; or for visits by or to partner scholars.
