xWelcome xx

Welcome from the Vice President for Research and Innovation

On behalf of the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation (OVPRI), we welcome you to the University College Cork (UCC) Research Support Services website.

UCC is an internationally competitive, research-led University that plays a key role in the development of Ireland's knowledge-based economy. Our University is one of the premier research institutions in Ireland and, internationally, is ranked among the top 2% of universities worldwide.

The goal of UCC Research Support Services is to support and develop UCC research activities, and to assist the University research community through the provision of information, guidance and advice on all aspects related to the planning, funding, execution and application of research.

We also work to communicate to the University community, and to the general public, about the quality, breadth, and significance of research carried out at UCC.
