The Ryan Institute for EnvironmentalMarine and Energy Research, has been established in 2010 from a strategic merger of the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) and Martin Ryan Institute (MRI) for Marine Science.

The Ryan Institute has been established to:

  • develop a high-quality capability in priority areas of environmental, marine and energy research
  • support interdisciplinary research across all colleges within NUI Galway
  • promote collaborative research with other universities and research institutes within Ireland and overseas
  • foster interaction with policy making bodies, regulatory authorities and other stakeholders
  • encourage research and research interactions with industry
  • educate graduate students with requisite skills for work in the environmental, marine and energy sectors
  • publicise research activities to schools, state agencies, industry and civil society

 

Its location near the North Atlantic Ocean is a strong driver of the research priorities within the Institute. Its emphasis is on (1) understanding and prediction of climate, ecological, terrestrial and marine system changes, (2) innovation in energy-efficient technologies and bioenergy, (3) R & D in aquaculture, fisheries, offshore renewable energy resources and biodiscovery, (4) development of technologies for monitoring, modelling and mitigation of environmental pressures, and (5) provision of scientific and technical information to guide socioeconomic and policy decisions.
