Committees and Academic Board


As part of the implementation of the Academy’s Strategic Plan the Royal Irish Academy established 10 multidisciplinary committees in 2014.

Membership of the Committees is drawn from universities, research institutions, government agencies, industry and other relevant bodies throughout the island of Ireland.

The aim is to ensure broad representation on each Committee, taking account of gender, regional, thematic, organisational and North-South balances.

The Committees are as follows:

Climate Change and Environmental Sciences
Coiste Léann na Gaeilge, Litríocht na Gaeilge agus na gCultúr Ceilteach
Engineering and Computer Science
Ethical, Political, Legal and Philosophical Studies
Geosciences and Geographical Sciences
Historical Studies (including Classics, Near Eastern and Archaeology
Life and Medical Sciences
Physical, Chemical and Mathematical Sciences
Social Sciences
Study of Languages, Literature, Culture and Communication
