Research Infrastructure: Guidelines for Access

The HEA has developed national guidelines for access by researchers to research infrastructures hosted by higher education institutions or other research bodies in Ireland.

Guidelines available for download below.


Large Items of Research Equipment (LIRE)

The HEA has completed a national inventory of all significant publicly-funded research infrastructure and equipment. The Large Items of Research Equipment (LIRE) database is maintained by the HEA with the help and co-operation of each host institution. The LIRE database contains research equipment items with a value of at least €100,000.


LIRE is currently being updated and will be accessible via the HEA’s website shortly.
