€40m Funding for Greener and More Accessible Colleges

Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris said:

“I’m delighted to announce a significant devolved capital grant for the higher education sector to support a range of capital priorities.

“Our third level sector faces significant challenges in responding to climate objectives and this fund will assist with making energy upgrades.

“It will also ensure our campuses are inclusive and accessible. The funding can be used to make the necessary upgrades to make campuses accessible for people with disabilities but it can also be used to help students to access laptops or other ICT requirements.

“The funding forms part of ongoing investment in the higher education sector under Project Ireland 2040 and reaffirms a strong commitment to public investment in higher education infrastructure.”
