CACSSS Research Support Fund: 2017 -18


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 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


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.


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
