DCU Research Lifecycle - Contact Us

Lifecycle Overview

DCU Research has mapped the DCU Research Lifecycle and supports available to assist you throughout the Research Lifecycle - from defining your project idea and applying for funding, through to running and finishing your project.

This content was developed as part of a large-scale cross-team project.  Project team members included members from the Research Development, Research SupportResearch Project Administration, and Research Infrastructure teams.  The information included in the Lifecycle was compiled from hundreds of engagements (including surveys, focus groups, meetings and user testing) with researchers and support staff across DCU.  

We will continue to monitor and update the information as required.
