NRA Research Fellowship Programme
The Authority is committed to the development of longer-term research. To facilitate this, the Authority, in April 2007, initiated a Research Fellowship Programme as an integral part of its on-going Research Strategy. The Programme enables universities and institutes to apply for financial support for PhD and post-doctoral programmes covering subjects that are relevant to the aims of the NRA. The Call for Proposals is specific to research topics identified by the NRA, although other topics outside those specified may be submitted for consideration. PhD programmes are normally three years while post-doctoral programmes can be one to three years in duration.
The Call is publicised annually in national newspapers, technical journals and the NRA website (See Tenders Page for current Calls). The Call includes a technical specification for particular research topics identified by NRA staff. The Call for Proposals is made each March/April with a project start date of October. The first call was initiated in April 2007. Projects commissioned through the Research Fellowship Programme can be viewed on the NRA website: see Project Profiles.
