She is an applied economist whose research interests include the economics of innovation, innovation and innovation policy, drivers of firm performance and growth, innovation, science and industrial policy evaluation, innovation and human capital, and industrial/enterprise development and policy.

Helena was an invited Visiting Fellow at Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK (2008). She was also a Visiting Fellow at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge (2008), where she is now a lifetime member. She is a Research Associate at the UK's Enterprise Research Centre.

She has also been invited to deliver many keynote addresses both nationally and internationally


Helena is currently Principal Investigator on a five year (2018-2023) project funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) under its Science Policy Research programme. This research project evaluates the impact of innovation and science policy instruments on firm performance from national and international perspectives. To deliver on this current project, she leads a team of Postdoctoral Researchers, PhD students and Research Assistants based at the University of Limerick. For over 20 years, she has generated significant research funding from both academic (e.g. EU-FP7, IRCHSS/IRC, RIA) and policy-making (e.g. Enterprise Ireland and SFI) sources.

Professor Lenihan is particularly interested in demonstrating the impact of her research on the economy and society more broadly. As a researcher, the chance to make an impact on society through research is a prospect that Helena is very passionate about. She champions the University of Limerick's Research Impact initiative and chairs, UL's Research Impact Committee (www.ul.ie/researchimpact).

Helena was awarded one of the first National Excellence in Teaching Awards by the National Academy for Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (NAIRTL). She has also been twice awarded the UL Excellence in Teaching Award.
