The research week kicks off on Friday, February 11, and will continue until February 18.

MIC’s first Research Week is taking place virtually from February 11 – 18, 2022 at Mary Immaculate College (MIC) via the Microsoft Teams platform.


Normally an annual one-day occurrence celebrating research activity, this showcase has now expanded to comprise a week of exciting research-related events including a number of keynote speakers and contributors in areas such as research integrity, research assessment developments in Europe, open research and changing norms in research publication, The Irish ORCID Consortium and unique persistent digital identifiers, and current best practice in doctoral supervision.

The week kicks off on Friday, February 11 at 9 am on Microsoft Teams with a choice of online presentations delivered by the MIC School of Education and Faculty of Arts. The first of the keynote events is on Monday, February 14 – ‘Evolving Practice in Doctoral Supervision’ with Professor Barbara Dooley.

A plenary roundtable event, ‘Diversity and Research’, will focus on research activity in the context of EDII themes and will be hosted by MIC’s new Director of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion & Interculturalism, Dr Lorraine McIlrath.

There will also be a number of events showcasing current research by MIC staff and postgraduate research students, such as new projects, recent accomplishments and research ideas.

According to Professor Michael Healy, Vice President of Research at MIC, “Recognising the importance of research in the careers of those setting out on academic pathways, whether in postgraduate research or at staff early researcher level, Research Week 2022 will incorporate a substantial component of research skills training across several ‘Research Skills for Early Career Researchers’ sessions, along with a seminar offering editorial insights for those planning to publish in international peer-reviewed journals and a special workshop on how to write competitive funding applications.”
