COALESCE Research Fund 2018

The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission is delighted to be in partnership with the Irish Research Council (IRC) and a number of other funding bodies including the CSO, Irish Aid and Government Departments to bring forward a ground-breaking research opportunity.

The COALESCE Research Fund 2018 is a new fund for research that addresses national and global societal challenges, and seeks to fund excellent research.

The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission and the IRC will be co-funding research in the field of human rights and equality through two research grants of €100,000 each for a 15-month study period: one focused on interculturalism and the other on socio-economic rights.

All potential applicants must submit an expression of interest by 28 June 2018, and for more details and information on how to apply, visit the IRC website at
