At the Royal Irish Academy we champion Irish academic research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers, support excellent scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated.

Support from our donors, corporate friends, sponsors and affiliates aids the Royal Irish Academy to nurture our best young academics, to preserve our treasured library resources for current and future researchers, to present engaging, informative and challenging events and publications that impact public thinking and policy formation.
