EPA Research

“Using knowledge to protect and improve our natural environment and human health”

EPA funded environmental research provides essential scientific support for environmental policy development, implementation and broader decision making.

Since 1994, the EPA has funded research that has increased national understanding of our environment, the challenges it faces and responses to these. It has also developed high quality research capacity and supported innovation that is internationally respected.

The EPA Research Programme is a Government of Ireland initiative funded by the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications.
