Research

One of our key strategic aims is to undertake, encourage, fund and communicate research into the causes of, cures for and management of epilepsy and into the social and psychological effects of the condition. Our Research Funding Scheme was set up in 2010 to provide epilepsy researchers in Ireland with an avenue to access funding for world-class research to further this aim. Since then, we are proud to have invested over €1,000,000 (including HRB contributions) in Irish based projects at leading Irish institutions including RCSI, Trinity College, University College Dublin and Dublin City University investigating a wide range of epilpesy issues.

Epilepsy Ireland is a member of Health Research Charities Ireland (formerly the MRCG) and to date, eight projects have been jointly funded with the Health Research Board under the HRB/HRCI Joint Funding Scheme.
