Event Information

Registration for this event is now closed. 

Following the very successful launch of the new RIAI Research initiative in June a second session is being held on 21 July 2021, from 12.00 -14.00.

The focus of this networking event is on introducing potential partners (researchers and practices/enterprise partners) and supervisors to each other.

Through its committee and taskforce structure, the RIAI has identified the following priority research themes:

  1. Housing and Communities
  2. Sustainability and the Climate Crisis
  3. The Architectural Profession / Knowledge and Skills
  4. Materials / Construction Technologies         

The event will be structured with chaired breakout sessions under these themes and on registration attendees will be asked to select two thematic sessions. 

The RIAI will act as a funding partner and will issue a call out for written research proposals under these themes. Examples of research questions and details of the submission process will be announced on July 21st. 

An objective of the RIAI Cultivating Research Scheme is to build a strong culture of research in Irish architecture by connecting the profession with researchers, supported by the schools of architecture. Practitioners are strongly encouraged to attend this event.
