HRCI Position Paper 2024

Three recommendations for elected representatives and policy makers

In the 2024 HRCI Position Paper, we outline the top priorities for both HRCI and our members, aimed at enhancing health research in Ireland. While there are many aspects of health research in need of attention and support, we believe it is urgent and opportune to address these recommendations.

1. Increase capital expenditure in health research
2. Progress health research legislative reform
3. Include health research charities and wider civil society in national research decision making
We are asking elected representatives, policy makers and everyone with influence in the health research space to prioritise them, as they plan for the year ahead.
