Sustainable Development Research Institute


The Sustainable Development Research Institute (SDRI) will deliver on LIT and TU’s ambition to be at the forefront of sustainable development in the TU Region, by delivering inter-disciplinary research and building new knowledge and delivering positive impacts for and outcomes for society. It will build on the extensive foundation of applied research within the LIT Thurles campus to create a Nationally and Internationally recognised centre of excellence which enables communities, enterprise and industry to contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


Focused around the themes of Nature, Economy, Society and Wellbeing, SDRI will deliver a step change in LIT/TUs contribution to the sustainable development agenda, delivering on the TU ambition of being a research informed organisation and inform future policy through active collaboration with HEIs, RPOs and policy makers Nationally and Internationally.
