A total of €964,990 has been distributed to Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) to support research projects and students whose work has been severely affected by the pandemic.
The funding, recently announced by Higher Education Minister Simon Harris, was warmly welcomed by WIT President Willie Donnelly.
Prof. Donnelly said: We are delighted to see our research and innovation being recognized by the region. The funding provides a level of continued security for our research community who otherwise may have had to seek alternative opportunities outside of the region and Ireland.”
WIT added that the funding will help to protect students and important projects at a “critical moment for Ireland’s national research system”.
