UCCRSA is focused primarily on representing researchers within UCC. Additionally UCCRSA is working hard to build relationships with other researcher groups both nationally (IRSA) and internationally (ICoRSA). We also aim to disseminate relevant information to researchers that is pertinent to them. In order to receive these updates contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the list. This is a free resource.
To facilitate activities such as attendance at meetings, bringing in speakers and organising social events some expenses are incurred. UCCRSA operates on a voluntary basis and as such receives no funding from the university or otherwise. For that reason we depend on the generosity of our members who opt into making a small monthly contribution. Similar to the UCC Staff Sports club,we are asking for a €2.50 contribution per month, which is deducted directly from your payslip. This can be done downloading the UCCRSA membership form.

In order to fund UCCRSA, the committee encourages all contract researchers to become full members.
Research Professional is an extensive database of open research funding opportunities, which is available to all UCC researchers. It provides up-to-date information about relevant funding calls as well as research policy and practice news.
