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.
The new EU research programme: Horizon 2020, was launched on Tuesday 10th December 2013. The EPA will promote, encourage and facilitate 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.
