The Irish Research Council has announced a partnership with The Wheel, a representative body for community and voluntary organisations and charities across Ireland. The Irish Research Council (IRC) wants to ensure that high-quality research coming out of Ireland contributes to social innovation, and helps socially excluded and marginalised groups. With this aim in mind, the IRC has awarded almost €400,000 in funding to more than 40 research projects under its Engaging Civic Society initiative, which includes the partnership with The Wheel.
