Research Funding

The TCBR receives no core funding apart from a small annual grant from the School of Natural Sciences which currently allows us to employ Dr Ainhoa González Del Campo as a Research Officer (one day per week). Funding for research comes from the activity of PIs. Research funding totalling >€7.5 million has been awarded to TCBR PIs during the period 2007-mid 2012.

Research projects currently underway which are associated with the Centre include:

  • Legume-supported Cropping Systems for Europe, PIs - Mike Williams and Jane Stout EU FP7
  • Toxic nectar and pollen: impacts on flower-visiting mutualists and antagonists and role in invasion success, PI Jane Stout, Funding SFI RFP 2010 and IRCSET
  • Plant-pollinator interactions in priority habitats, PI Jane Stout, Funding TCD studentship
  • Effects of scale and landscape structure on pollinator diversity and the provision of ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes, PI Jane Stout, Funding IRCSET
  • How Conflict and Cooperation Shape the Evolution of Social Behaviour: From Individual Interactions to Group Structure, PI Andrew Jackson, Funding IRCSET / Marie Curie
  • Linking processes to ecological patterns, PI Andrew Jackson, Funding PRTLI
