Support our Research

The number of applications for funding received by Epilepsy Ireland shows that there is great interest and expertise in this country for epilepsy research. Our last call for proposals in 2017 received a record 15 applications for support.

Since the launch of the scheme, almost 1 in 5 of all applications receive funding. However, we have been able to support just 1 in 3 of all applications deemed 'fundable' by our Research Review Committee.

Our ability to support important Irish-led research now and in the future depends on our ability to raise adequate funds, so donations or fundraising initiatives to support research are always welcome.

All funds from our Time for a Break monthly draw go towards funding for our epilepsy research projects. Thank you to all our supporters who have enabled us to fund 11 important projects to date.

All research supporters will receive our annual Research Newsletter, keeping you fully up to date on how we use your generous donations.
