Research and Education in the EPA

In this section we outline details of the national environmental research programme and provide environmental educational materials for students and teachers.


Effective management of the environment is increasingly science-driven. Through our research and development programme, the Environmental Protection Agency is generating the knowledge and expertise needed to protect and manage Ireland's environment. 


Education is a vital way to ensure the protection of our environment for future generations. In this section you can find out about the educational resources the Environmental Protection Agency has developed in recent years, including games and resource packs.  The materials are being used by teachers at primary and second level to teach specific areas of the curriculum and raise environmental awareness generally.
