CACSSS Research Support Fund: 2017 -18

Funding

At its meeting of 10 January 2011, CEMC agreed that, as a matter of policy, all CPD and related programmes in the College (the income from which is exempt from University overheads) should be charged a ten per cent overhead, and that the funds so raised would be ring fenced to support research related activities in the College. The matter was passed to the Research and Innovation Committee, which has agreed that these funds should be used to assist CACSSS staff in attending national and international conferences and in meeting other eligible research costs.

 

Applications

Applications to this fund are invited on a two-year cycle, using the relevant application form. Eligible members of staff may, in other words, apply for funding both for 2017–18 and for 2018–19, though, as the terms and conditions state, may receive only €500 in total in any given academic year.

 

Calls for applications

Four calls per annum will be made for this fund, to facilitate advance planning on the part of members of staff. The final call of the academic year will be made on 15 June.

Major Grant Application Support 2017 - 18

Funding

The College has created a fund to support major applications to non-national funding sources, primarily but not exclusively the European Research Council. The fund will provide two main kinds of support: teaching support to allow a member of staff additional time to draft and prepare an application; research supports which will assist a member of staff in meeting the expected research career standards in the funding scheme in question. Support will be provided only for funding bids with a minimum total value of €1m; in case of multi-partner bids, those where UCC is the lead partner will be prioritized.

Applications

Eligible members of staff may apply for funding either for 2017–18 or for 2018–19, though, as the terms and conditions state, may receive only a maximum of €2000 in total in any given academic year.

Applications to be submitted by hard copy in an envelope clearly marked “CACSSS Major Grant Application Support Fund” to the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, G31, O’Rahilly Building, UCC

Interdisciplinary Research Funding Scheme

At its meeting in September 2017, the Research and Innovation Committee proposed to introduce two new funding schemes in line with key strategic priorities in the OVPRI Research Strategy for 2017-2022. These new schemes will replace the 4th Research Support funding call for 2017-2018. The Interdisciplinary Research Funding Scheme is intended to provide support for interdisciplinary research initiatives led by CACSSS in response to emerging and changing societal challenges locally and globally. Informed by commitment to the need for recognition of the value and importance of the Humanities and Social Sciences in responding to the issues faced by contemporary society, it will hence provide seed funding to encourage bottom-up initiatives to ensure UCC is at the forefront of social, cultural and ethical responses to local and global societal needs, and will prioritise collaborative interdisciplinary work with partners outside CACSSS. Identified as a core part of UCC's research mission and strategic priorities, it is important that CACSSS takes on board the challenge to provide leadership on IDR strategy, in order to ensure that research and innovation is understood in terms that go beyond the economic, industrial and technological.

Applications for this fund are invited on a two-year cycle, using the relevant application form.
Applicants may apply for up to €3000, and there will be a limited number of awards.

Impact Funding Scheme

At its meeting in September 2017, the Research and Innovation Committee proposed to introduce two new funding schemes in line with key strategic priorities in the OVPRI Research Strategy for 2017-2022. These new schemes will replace the 4th Research Support funding call for 2017-2018. The Impact Funding Scheme is intended to provide support in developing the impact of CACSSS research, showing the ways in which it contributes to respond to emerging and changing societal challenges and the effects it has on local, national and international contexts. It is therefore intended as a form of follow-on funding for existing research projects, in order to bring excellent research to new audiences and user communities. Identified as a core part of UCC's research mission and strategic priorities, it is important that CACSSS takes on board the challenge to measure and articulate its research impact, as well as to take leadership in developing appropriate pathways to impact.

Applications for this fund are invited on a two-year cycle, using the relevant application form.
Applicants may apply for up to €3000, and there will be a limited number of awards.

Impact Case Study Narrative Prize Scheme

The College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences (CACSSS) at UCC has an excellent record in fostering and sustaining high quality research at the forefront of international activity, as evidenced in the strong indicators of international excellence across the different disciplines in the 2015 Research Quality Review. A particular strength, highlighted across the College, is the commitment to an open and engaged research culture, in the range of research-related activities showcased under RAI4. Although the range and quality of activity in this area was considered by all panels to be impressive, with clear and compelling evidence of engagement with a wide range of local, national and international audiences, most reviewers indicated the need for improved systems for archiving, measuring and enhancing the visibility of these activities and, above all, for better articulation of their status as indicators of the impact of excellent research.

In order to encourage the development and embedding of best practice in articulating the impact of CACSSS research, the College has developed an Impact Case Study template for use by individual researchers and research teams across its constituent Schools. Prizes will be awarded as follows to the best Impact Case Study Narratives produced in any given year:

1st Prize = 1500 euros
2nd Prize = 1000 euros
3rd prize = 500 euros


The prize money will be allocated for research expenses only, and used for vouched research expenditure only. All submissions will be assessed by the College Research and Innovation Committee.

Applicants are advised to consult the CACSSS Impact Case Study Template document in preparing the Impact Case Study Narrative and should submit the latter using the CACSSS Impact Case Study Template only.

Proposed call 15 May 2018; Deadline for applications 30 July 2018; Decisions 31 August 2018.

Applications to be submitted by hard copy in an envelope clearly marked “CACSSS Impact Case Study Narrative Prize” to the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences, G31, O’Rahilly Building, UCC.
