Launch of Roundtable Report on the PEACE PLUS Programme and Higher Education and Research30 June 2021
DownloadsDiscussion paper: RIA roundtable on the Peace Plus programme and Higher Education and Research
In April 2021 the Royal Irish Academy, supported by funding from the Communicating Europe Initiative at the Department of Foreign Affairs, convened a virtual roundtable discussion focusing on how the higher-education (HE) and research sector can positively engage with the impending PEACE PLUS programme to achieve the maximum impact in furthering the objectives of both the HE and research community and the PEACE PLUS programme itself.
Participants in the roundtable included representatives from the HE and research sector from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. They were asked to consider the following questions:
- How can the types of collaborative and cross-border HE and research projects that would be of benefit to the PEACE PLUS programme be instigated and facilitated?
- How can the HE and research community develop a shared ambition for how it could engage with the PEACE PLUS programme to advance HE and research goals?
- What value can the HE and research community offer to the PEACE PLUS programme?
The Academy is delighted to release this discussion report which gives a non-exhaustive overview of the observations made and points raised by the participants.
