Organization: University of Limerick
Location: Limerick, Ireland
Pay/Volunteer: The bursary will provide EU fees and a stipend of €16,000, as well as training opportunities in research career development and policy impact.
Description: Are you committed to doing research with policy impact and enthusiastic about research on local government and public policies that aim to make the most of public space and improve health outcomes? With this graduate bursary, you can pursue research with policy impact while you receive financial support and training from the University of Limerick’s new Graduate Bursaries 2030 scheme. You will also benefit from being part of a major multi-disciplinary project ( Go Green Routes ) funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.
The project will involve studying the impact of local government autonomy on the development of policy to enhance the physical and mental health of urban residents, including nature-based solutions and the development of urban green spaces such as green corridors, linear parks, pocket parks and shared walkways. The project will be designed in consultation with the supervisors and may include cross-national comparative studies involving Go Green Routes partner cities. Project outputs after 12 months will include a report for communication to stakeholders and a proposal for the further development of the student’s work beyond the first, funded year.
