The Economic and Social Opportunities from Increased Cooperation on the Shared Island

The ESRI has a joint research programme with the Department of the Taoiseach titled The Economic and Social Opportunities from Increased Cooperation on the Shared Island. The purpose of the research programme is to produce research outputs which will add to understanding of current and potential linkages across the island of Ireland in a range of economic, social and environmental domains. Last year, the research focussed on aspects of the health and education sectors from an all-island perspective, cross-border services trade, and enhancing attractiveness to high-value foreign direct investment across the island of Ireland. In 2022, the research will examine renewable energy supports; migrant integration; and early childhood care and education on the island of Ireland.
