EPA Funding

About EPA Funding

The EPA’s current Research Programme 2014–2020 provides funding under three pillars -Sustainability, Climate and Water.

This is facilitated through the annual EPA Research Call, which is announced between April and June each year

There are currently over 200 active research projects funded by the EPA. Information about these projects can be accessed through the EPA Research project database.

Research projects are required to upload datasets and outputs onto the SAFER-Data Research Data Archive, where it is available for public viewing.

As well as providing funding under the pillars, we also provide funding for:
