Senior Academic Leadership Initiative

Erasmus+

Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are invited to submit applications for funding under the Senior Academic Leadership Initiative (SALI) Call 2019, in line with the requirements set out in the Call for Applications. This Call is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA), on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills (DES).  Following a competitive process based on an annual Call for applications from HEIs, the HEA will approve a defined number of new and additional senior academic leadership posts to successful HEIs.  It is envisaged that 45 senior academic leadership posts will be awarded to HEIs over three years to assist in accelerating gender balance at senior levels.

The Senior Academic Leadership Initiative aims to help achieve equality of outcome in the higher education sector. New and additional senior academic leadership posts will be funded in areas where:

  • there is clear evidence of significant gender under-representation
  • where this appointment will have significant impact within the HEI and the relevant faculty/department/functional unit
  • where they would be a proportionate and effective means to achieve accelerated and sustainable change within an institution

Deadline for submission is 12.00 18 October 2019

HEA Landscape Call 2019

Erasmus+

The National Strategy for Higher Education provides for substantial and appropriate restructuring, consolidation and co-operative approaches within the landscape of Irish higher education, including the development of Technological Universities and the incorporation of HEIs in the Initial Teacher Education area.

The HEA, with the support of the Department of Education and Skills, recognises that such reforms carry additional costs and has provided for a fund to support consortia engaged in implementing reforms of the higher education landscape, including in particular those designated, or seeking designation, as Technological Universities.

The HEA is now inviting submissions for funding support in respect of the costs arising from landscape reform. The total funding available under this call will be c. €14 million as allocated by the Department of Education and Skills.

Submissions should be received by the HEA in electronic format before 5pm, Friday 3rd May 2019.
