Centre for Law & the Environment secures Communicating Europe Initiative Funding

21 May 2021

The Centre for Law & the Environment at UCC has been awarded funding under the Department of Foreign Affairs Communicating Europe Initiative 2021

The funding will support a project led by Professor Áine Ryall on the theme Communicating European Union Environmental Law, Policy and Practice.   The project will include a webinar to be held in autumn 2021 and a podcast mini-series exploring contemporary issues in EU environmental law. 

The Centre has a strong record of success in securing Communicating Europe Initiative funding to promote and support public engagement with EU environmental law and policy.

Building on the success of last year’s webinar and podcast mini-series, the Centre hopes to attract an even greater number of participants on this occasion and to support informed debate on cutting-edge developments in EU environmental law and policy.

Professor Áine Ryall commented:

We are delighted to have secured this prestigious funding again this year.  We look forward to working with colleagues in the Department of Foreign Affairs to deliver another successful programme of events in 2021.  Given the speed of developments in EU environmental law, we have a significant amount of new material to consider this year and we anticipate a high level of interest in the Centre’s activities.
