Out of 16 applications in the 2023-2025 funding call for Trinity’s Research Incentive Scheme (RIS), 8 projects have now been awarded funding. 

The primary purpose of this scheme is to incentivise new and ambitious projects. The categories of funding supported by the RIS are intended to facilitate a critical stage in the lifecycle of the proposed new project.

Congratulating the awardees, Professor Eve Patten, Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub said:

“These projects demonstrate the innovative ways in which Trinity’s Arts and Humanities scholars are engaging with new partners and new technologies to pioneer unique approaches to their disciplines. We were really impressed with how researchers are democratising access to archives and collections but also problem solving for practitioners. We are delighted to be able to support their work.”
