    Goals / Remit

    University of Galway has earned national and international recognition as a research-led university with a commitment to top-quality teaching. With over 19,000 students and more than 2,770 staff, the University has a distinguished reputation for teaching and research excellence. The University has a growing international profile for its research in five key thematic areas: “Enhancing policy and society; Enriching creativity and culture; Improving health and well being; Realising potential through data and enabling technologies; Sustaining our planet and people.” The identification of priority research areas and subsequent investments in these areas have enabled the University to develop a critical mass of expertise which has led to significant success in securing competitive research grants, nationally and internationally. The University has been awarded over €140 million from EU funded R&I Programmes since 2014 supporting impactful research. (Previous ID number: 579735319590-03)
