You can support research into policy issues affecting Ireland, both nationally and internationally by becoming a member of the ESRI. The income from membership contributions is essential to the continuation of the ESRI’s work.
The Institute receives an annual grant-in-aid from the Department of Finance to support the scientific and public interest elements of the Institute’s activities (more). The grant in aid represents approximately 22 percent of the Institute’s income. The remainder comes from:
- major research programme agreements with government departments and state agencies;
- specific research projects commissioned by government departments, state agencies and international bodies such as the European Commission;
- membership subscriptions;
- sale of publications.
Our publications include the Quarterly Economic Commentary and Ireland’s Economic Outlook, research reports and publications in a wide range of academic journals.
ESRI members receive a copy of the Annual Review of Research, the Quarterly Economic Commentary and Ireland’s Economic Outlook, and are invited to attend the Institute’s Annual General Meeting.
Alternatively, you may wish to subscribe to the Quarterly Economic Commentary. The QEC subscription includes 4 hard copy issues of the QEC per year, plus Ireland’s Economic Outlook (published every 2 years). Subscription details are on the right.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support our work through their membership and subscription.
