SFI Conferences and Workshops
The purpose of the SFI Conferences and Workshops programme is to facilitate international and national conferences and workshops of strategic value hosted in the Republic of Ireland.
SFI Research Centres - Spokes
This programme is a vehicle to enable the addition of new industrial and academic partners and projects to a SFI Research Centre, so allowing the Centre to expand and develop in line with new priorities and opportunities.
SFI Research Professorship Programme
Attracting outstanding research talent to Ireland is one of the principal ambitions of SFI. The recruitment of world-leading scientists and engineers will help to build the national research base and enhance Ireland’s reputation as a location to carry out high-impact, high-quality research.
SFI Discover Programme - Opportunistic Funding Mechanism
The Science Foundation Ireland Discover Programme Call aims to support and develop science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education and public engagement sector in Ireland by: investing in, developing and extending activity and ability in this area, and exploring and encouraging novel means of engaging the public
SFI Strategic Partnerships Programme
The Strategic Partnership Programme is open on a rolling basis to applications involving strategic opportunities within all areas covered by SFI’s legal remit where significant co-funding from a company, collection of companies, funding agency, charity, philanthropic organization or Higher Education Institute is available.
SFI ERC Support Programme
The SFI ERC Support Programme provides an additional overhead payment to the Host Institution of ERC award winners, which is designed to assist awardees, who may either have won their ERC award while working at an Irish Host Institution or who may have recently been recruited to an Irish Host Institution from overseas, to successfully carry out their ERC-funded research.
SFI ERC Development Programme
The SFI ERC Development Programme supports researchers based in Ireland that have submitted a proposal to the ERC Starting Grant, Consolidator Grant and Advanced Grant schemes, have been deemed fundable, but were not eventually funded by the ERC due to a lack of available programme budget. Importantly, the programme aims to support or improve a resubmission to an ERC funding scheme.
Call for Submission of Proposals for Phase 2 Funding
SFI’s Agenda 2020 strategy aims to position Ireland as a global knowledge leader. A key objective of Agenda 2020 is to develop a set of world-leading, large-scale Research Centres that will provide major economic impact for Ireland.
Royal Society Science Foundation Ireland University Research Fellowship
This scheme is for outstanding scientists in the Republic of Ireland who are in the early stages of their research career and have the potential to become leaders in their field.
Science Foundation Ireland has partnered with the National Science Foundation (NSF) on a collaborative framework called I-Corps@SFI to allow participation of SFI-funded researchers in the NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Programme.
