UL receives it’s €4.34m grant

The University of Limerick has received their €4.34m grant for their mathematics research program.

Apparently it’s the largest single award for mathematics research in this country.

Speaking on the award, Professor Stephen O’Brien who is head of the research program at the UL said,

“This will also lead to the employment of more than 12 research fellows and graduate students in applied mathematics dedicated to the resolving of problems, a new cross-institutional fourth level postgraduate program and outreach summer schools aimed at demystifying mathematics in the eyes of second level students and the general public.”
The announcement of the grant was first made at the start of the month.
