Thanks to the generous philanthropic support of the CoMH industry partners the College*, through the College Research Committee, is able to offer six awards of €10,000. These awards will support projects for a maximum duration of one year from October 2019 to September 2020. A maximum of two awards will be awarded to any one School within the CoMH. All award monies must be spent through UCC’s online financial management system .

CiSA aims to promote collaborative research within the CoMH and the healthcare aligned services within the SSWHG and the Bons Secours Hospital, Cork. Collaborations involving researchers from other Colleges within UCC are encouraged. Preference will be given to those applications that involve multiple Schools within the CoMH and that importantly establish new inter-institutional collaborations with colleagues within the SSHWG. CiSA will fund new or substantially new research areas and with the aim of fostering them to a point where a more extensive grant application can be made.
