To express an interest in being nominated for one of these prizes by the Royal Irish Academy please submit the following to policy@ria.ie by midday on 18 March 2022: a letter explaining your suitability, a short curriculum vitae, and a list of your most important publications.

This opportunity is publicly advertised by the Royal Irish Academy.  

All expressions of interest received will be considered by the Academy’s Policy Oversight Group- the unit tasked with advising upon the initiation and implementation of all of the Academy’s policy and international activities and responsible for overseeing a standardised quality process for all outputs. Chaired by the Academy’s Secretary of Policy and International Relations, the six members of this group are all elected Members of the Royal Irish Academy and come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds in several institutions across the island of Ireland- both north and south of the border. On occasions, the Policy Oversight Group may also consult additional experts to inform their assessments and evaluations. 

The Royal Irish Academy values diversity and strives for a culture of equality and inclusion in all of its activities. As outlined in its Strategic Plan 2019-2023, the Academy is committed to ensuring greater gender, disciplinary, institutional and overall diversity in every area of the Academy and its work throughout the island of Ireland. It particularly welcomes nominations from under-represented groups and communities. 

As women are underrepresented in the Academy’s participation in international collaborative activities, nominations of women are particularly welcome.
