Research Hub

Welcome to the Staff Research Hub which provides information on some of the key resources available to research staff at LYIT.

The resources currently available to staff include:


LYIT subscribes to the Research Professional funding opportunity platform. Research Professional is an online database of research funding opportunities from all UK, Irish and EU funding agencies in addition to other global agencies too. These funding opportunities cover all disciplines and the platform provides an easy to use and efficient search interface for all researchers.
The Research Professional Database can be accessed both on and off site. At a high level you can log into the platform using your institute login details (email and password) to search for funding opportunities in your related discipline at the following link: https://www.researchprofessional.com/site/lkyit

To access the full range of features that Research Professional has to offer, users can set up their own account. This will enable users to:

  • Save key searches and bookmarks
  • Create email alerts for updates on new funding opportunities as they arise (it will return all national and international funding opportunities that you are eligible to apply for)
  • How you can promote your research activities and news on the LYIT Research Twitter page

For more information on how to access the Research Professional platform you can download the 'Quick Start Guide’ here
please click here where you will find a selection of videos that details how to set up your account and use the Research Professional platform.

If you have any questions regarding Research Professional please contact the researchoffice@lyit.ie for further assistance.


Research Integrity training is provided by LYIT in the form of an online course from Epigeum. This online training will cover every aspect of the research process, highlighting the potential issues that can arise while planning, conducting and reporting your research. It ultimately provides learners with a better understanding of their obligations and responsibilities as researchers. Assessment is then delivered at the end of the course with a selection of questions to ensure that learners demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge on the area of research integrity prior to being awarded a certificate of completion.

If you are interested in completing the Research Integrity training please contact the researchoffice@lyit.ie .

For more information on Research Integrity please see the National Policy Statement on Ensuring Research Integrity in Ireland.
