Research in Government Schools

During the current Covid-19 pandemic the Department’s prime concern is to keep schools safe, not only for our children and young people, but for all staff that support the delivery of education on our sites.

Consequently, the Department is not proceeding with approval of any research applications which have an impost upon schools or departmental resources at this time.

The Department is monitoring and regularly reviewing the situation and will recommence evaluating research applications at the earliest opportunity.

We thank you for your understanding at this time.
