Research Week is an important event that allows us to showcase and highlight the range of research that is currently being undertaken at University of Limerick, the importance of this research and demonstrates how our research can have a global impact at a time of unprecedented challenges. Our programme has been devised to demonstrate the growth in research excellence with impact and diversity across our research community.
Since 2019, Week 13 in our second semester has been devoted to Research Week, each year our programme is devised to demonstrate the growth in research excellence with impact and diversity across our research community and also features a number of external speakers.
University of Limerick Research Week 2023 took place from the 24th to the 28th of April. This marked UL’s fourth Research Week and the full programme of 25 events that took place is available here: Research Week 2023.
Evidence from RW23 suggests that Research Week is becoming a feature of UL’s research culture. The week generates a focus for UL to showcase and debate issues relating to research while generating a wealth of quality communications material to give life to the events into the future.
A number of videos of the events from Research Week 2023 are available on our dedicated Research Week 2023 YouTube playlist below, you can also browse our Research Week 2022 videos as well as our Thesis in Three 2022 videos.

Underpinning the research being carried out in UL is our revamped research strategy. ‘Wisdom For Action’ Research Strategy 2022-2027 which sets out our priorities to ensure that UL is a research-led, innovative, enterprising and inclusive institution that is committed to social good.
Working collaboratively with our wide range of partners and stakeholders, Research Week aims to showcase the wise expanse of research being carried out in UL. We have set out four mission-oriented challenges in which our research can make a difference: Sustainable Society, Inclusive Society, Smart Society and Healthy Society.
