EPA Research is built around 3 pillars:
and aims to:
Identify pressures: Providing assessments of current environmental status and future trends to identify pressures on our environment Inform policy:Generating evidence, reviewing practices and building models to inform policy development and implementationDevelop solutions:Using novel technologies and methods that address environmental challenges and provide green economic opportunities
EPA funded environmental research provides essential scientific support for environmental policy development, implementation and broader decision making. Since 1994, the EPA has funded research that has increased national understanding of our environment, the challenges it faces and responses to these. It has also developed high quality research capacity and supported innovation that is internationally respected. EPA Research is targeted to address the needs of key governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and also encourages the researcher community to engage with these stakeholders.

We are delighted to announce that almost all of the grants for 2014 have now been either offered or awarded.
Please see 2014 Research Call page for details of successful projects

The strategy for the next phase of the EPA's Research Programme was published to coincide with this year's call.
The REVISED 2015 Work Programme for Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 5 is now available (download the revised 2015 WP)
The deadlines for the 2015 calls are:
The EPA promotes, encourages and facilitates the successful participation of Irish researchers in Horizon 2020 via its role as National Delegate and Contact Point for the Societal Challenge 5 “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials” (Climate Action), in partnership with Enterprise Ireland. Read more on Horizon 2020 and EPA Support available
The EC has now published a call for ideas is at http://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/CALLforIDEAS-SC5
As part of the work programme 2016-2017 of the societal challenge 5 “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials” (SC5) of the Horizon 2020 framework programme, the European Commission intends to open calls for large-scale pilot/demonstration projects.
This builds on the advice from the Societal Challenge 5 Advisory Group and on the response to a public consultation in spring 2014 for preparing a scoping paper for the 2016 – 2017 work programme.
Ideas are invited at this stage for possible pilot/demonstration projects in the following areas:
The European Commission service will carefully examine all ideas received in view of (i) designing its 2016 – 2017 work programme and ensuing calls for proposals and (ii) defining and implementing a supportive EU research and innovation policy framework. The Commission does not engage itself to necessarily reproduce any of them into future calls for proposals; no grants will be awarded as a direct result of this call for ideas.
