Research & Innovation


The research funding base for the Institute of Technology sector has expanded over the last five years which has provided enhanced opportunities for LYIT to compete and source research funding.

Sources of funding successfully accessed over the last five years include:

  • Technological Sector Research (Strand 1, 2 and 3)
  • Enterprise Ireland (Innovation Vouchers, Innovation Partnerships, Applied Research Enhancement Programme)
  • Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET) .

LYIT’s research focus is on themes which have regional relevance and impact and which both reflect the Institute’s strengths and track record and complement the research and development activities of other third level institutions.
