Investigator-Led Projects (ILP) 2022

Investigator-Led Projects aim to create new knowledge that, over time, will help to address major health challenges in society and have an impact on tomorrow’s health and social care. Projects should be cutting-edge, add to the knowledge base internationally, and focus on important, timely research questions where the answers are of interest to an international audience. Supported research should lead to improved visibility and standing for Ireland and Irish researchers.

Applicants must have a suitable track record and demonstrate clearly that the research team contains the necessary breadth and depth of expertise in all methodological areas required for the development and delivery of the proposed project. Generally this means that the Lead Applicant must:

  • Show appropriate evidence of expertise matched to the nature and context of the project.
  • Show evidence of achievement as an independent researcher in their chosen research field.
  • Show evidence that they possess the capability and authority to mentor, manage and supervise less experienced researchers and to manage relationships with co-applicants, collaborators, and the host institution.

Lead Applicants must demonstrate clearly that their research team contains the necessary breadth and depth of expertise in all the methodological areas required in the development and delivery of the proposed project.

Only one application per Lead Applicant to this scheme will be considered.

Applications must be completed and submitted through the HRB online Grant E-Management System (GEMS) (https://grants.hrb.ie), and this system will close automatically at the deadline.

Prior to final submission to the HRB, all applications must first be reviewed and approved within GEMS by the authorized approver at the Host Institution as listed in the application form. It is critical therefore that applicants leave sufficient time in the process for the Research Office (or equivalent) in their nominated Host Institution to review, seek clarifications and approve applications prior to the final submission date. This may involve being aware of and complying with any internal Host Institution deadlines for review and approval, distinct from the HRB deadline.
