Starting with the launch of the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions (PRTLI) in 1998, The Atlantic Philanthropies ushered in a new era for research and innovation in Trinity. Chuck Feeney has become the most generous benefactor to Trinity since its foundation. Martin and Carmel Naughton, the Naughton Foundation In 2008 Mr and Mrs Naughton invested in the Naughton Institute, a state-of-the-art nanoscience facility CRANN. Trinity today, on a per researcher basis, is among the top in the world in Nanotechnology and in Material Science. Since the initial investment the Naughtons have supported a number of other initiatives including STEM scholarships. “Each year we are amazed to see the calibre of the fine young people who apply to us. It gives us great pleasure to support their STEM studies and we hope it will be of great benefit to them and Ireland in years to come.” The Cathal Ryan Trust and Danielle Ryan In 2010 The Capt. Cathal Ryan Trust represented by Danielle Ryan funded the construction of the new Lir Academy, a purpose- built facility to train a new generation of actors and others involved in stagecraft. "My late father and I had many discussions about creating a drama academy in Ireland. The Trust and Trinity share a common passion to create a training academy that will have a world-class reputation in the dramatic arts, one that would enable Irish students to realise their ambitions on stage and on screen throughout the world." Beate Schuler, Founder, Iropharm Ltd. In 2003 Dr Beate Schuler donated the Double Helix sculpture by Brian King to Trinity. Later Dr Schuler funded PhDs and professorships in chemistry.
