CES to partner with the University of Limerick and Queens University Belfast on new north-south research project

CES is a partner on an exciting new research project about youth crime, funded through the Irish government's Shared Island Fund. The North-South Research Programme is a new initiative administered by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) on behalf of the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science in Ireland. Awards from the first funding call were announced on March 2nd.

‘Stable Lives Safer Streets’ is one of 62 collaborative research projects awarded funding through the programme. The project is led by Dr Catherine Naughton, Research Evidence into Policy, Programmes, Practice (REPP) and the University of Limerick School of Law, in collaboration with Dr Colm Walsh, The Violence Prevention Lab, Queens University Belfast. CES is delighted to be a partner on this project which will involve the development of a north-south hub of scientific excellence to serve intergovernmental and statutory frameworks in the policy area of youth crime.

Majella McCloskey, Senior Manager with CES said:

‘We are excited to collaborate with colleagues at Queens University Belfast and the University of Limerick as part of the Shared Island Programme. Growing strategic partnerships is a key commitment for CES in our new strategic plan. We look forward to bringing CES’s experience and knowledge of working north and south to this innovative partnership.’
