One-to-one Research Support Available in TRiSS

Dr Nina Shiel, Research Programme Officer in the Faculty of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, will be available on Thursdays in C6.006 in TRiSS from February 27th 2020 on, and will be happy to meet with you by appointment to discuss funding plans, applications, budgets, opportunities, ideas, and all other matters to do with research funding. Nina specialises in EU H2020 funding but will be able to point you in the right direction if you have questions regarding any national, UK or other funding scheme. Nina would also be delighted to meet with small groups (Schools, research groups, etc) to facilitate workshops, give presentations and organise writing sessions.

Nina joined the Faculty as Research Programme Officer in January 2019 as part of an Enterprise Ireland co-funded project to increase the participation of Trinity's Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences researchers in the EU H2020 funding programme. She shares her time between TRiSS, Trinity Long Room Hub and the Research Development Office. Her role has a strong strategic aspect in terms of horizon scanning and facilitating opportunities for European funding, and she also works with individual AHSS researchers on EU funding identification and proposal development. Prior to joining Trinity, Nina worked in similar roles in Lancaster University and Dublin City University, and she has a long background in varied roles across academia as a researcher, lecturer and administrator.

Nina has a PhD in Comparative Literature from Dublin City University; M.Litt in Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies from Trinity, and BA (Mod) in Ancient History and Archaeology with Latin also from Trinity. She is passionate about interdisciplinary research and research communication in new and interesting forms.

As she has to move around a lot, please contact her by email: nina.shiel@tcd.ie
