Programmes for Early and Mid-Career Researchers
Science Foundation Ireland recognises the necessity to support early- and mid-career researchers to become excellent, fully independent research leaders and provides a number of mechanisms in that regard.
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.
