This month, ADAPT Academic Professor Lorraine Leeson, along with her colleague Dr Nina Sheil (Charm-EU), was awarded a prestigious Trinity Excellence in Research Award in the category, “Position research at the heart of Trinity“. This achievement was in response to their work to develop a research framework for the European University Alliance, CHARM. The research arm of CHARM, the TORCH project, has folded learning around the cross-cutting principles of Interdisciplinarity / Trandisciplinarity, Research Ethics and Integrity and Gendered Innovation into their work in Trinity.
CHARM is an European University alliance, co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme, between the University of Barcelona (coordinator), Trinity College Dublin, Utrecht University, the University of Montpellier, Eötvös Loránd University Budapest, Åbo Akademi University, Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg, Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences and the University of Bergen.
Launched in 2020, the Research Excellence Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of researchers and those who support research in Trinity. Eight prizes of €2,000 are awarded to those who have embodied the principles of Trinity College Dublin’s Research Charter and who have pushed the boundaries of knowledge in their research. The recipients of Trinity’s 2023 Research Excellence Awards were honoured at a ceremony hosted by the Dean of Research that took place on the 1st June 2023.
