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.
