  • The Social Protection Research Innovation Awards (SPRIA) (formerly known as the Social Inclusion Research Innovation Awards) were introduced in 2010. The SPRIA programme aims to promote innovative, policy-relevant poverty and social inclusion (including active inclusion) research that complements the ESRI poverty research programme and contributes to the Department’s understanding of key policy questions. It is funded through and managed by the Irish Research Council (IRC).

    The IRC recently announced a call for applications for the 2013 Social Protection Research Innovation Awards (SPRIA) under their Research Project Grants Scheme.

    To date, four social policy research projects have received SPRIA funding, as follows:
    A knowledge transfer co-fund initiative by the Department of Economics, Trinity College Dublin, and the Vincentian Partnership for Social Justice, 'Establishing Minimum Income Standards for Irish Households'. See here and here for copies of research outputs.
  • A social policy research project conducted by the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology, NUI Galway called ‘Poverty and the life course: developing material deprivation indicators for a diverse older population in Ireland’.
  • The 2011 UCD Geary Institute Summer School ‘Frontiers in Poverty Research’
  • The 2012 UCC Summer School ‘Conceptualising and Measuring Poverty: Methods for the 21st Century’.
