Charlemont Grants awarded 2020/202119 February 2021
The Royal Irish Academy has funded fifteen early career researchers under the Charlemont Grants scheme.
This year, in light of COVID-19 travel restrictions the scheme provides seed funding for the development of international or all island collaboration projects across all areas in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences.
This year's funded projects include Dr. Dawn Walsh's work on the "Brexit Witness project: negotiating the Northern Ireland/Ireland dimension of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, 2016-2020" and Dr. Janosh Heller's research into "Light-sheet microscopy to uncover changes in the glymphatic system in epilepsy".
