IICN Role and Functions

The Irish Institute of Clinical Neuroscience (IICN) aims to promote the academic clinical neurosciences in the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland. This objective is pursued by supporting educational initiatives and by advancing research in neuroscience.

A number of academic meetings are organised by the Institute each year, at which neuroscientists, trainees in neuroscience and the wider medical community may learn about new research and developments. The Institute also facilitates and publicises local and international neuroscience meetings.

The Institute promotes and encourages research in neuroscience in Ireland. Research is supported through IICN Research Awards which offers Grant funding to successful applicants following open competition and peer review of applications. In addition, the IICN publicises the avenues through which research funding may be accessed. The Institute welcomes the assistance of corporations and individuals who wish to donate or raise funds for neuroscience research. Interested parties may contact the IICN by telephone at +353 61 622652 or by email at info@iicn.ie

The Institute supports policy initiatives to improve the provision of neurological services in Ireland and works with the Department of Health, Health Service Executive and the Neurological Alliance of Ireland to advance and develop services.
