Awards and Prizes
The Royal Irish Academy recognises excellence and inspires future generations of thought-leaders by awarding prizes and medals.
Our Medals identify and celebrate the achievements and international impact of Ireland’s world class researchers along with individual contributions to the advancement of the Academy itself. While the medal is presented to individual researchers, it is broadly accepted as a recognition of the extraordinary work of institutes, research teams and individual dedication to the advancement of the Academy and its objectives.
Our prizes serve as both recognition and incentive to established and early career researchers to endeavour. They serve to inspire the future leaders in learning in Ireland.
