Marie Curie European Union Transfer of Knowledge Project

(06 Aug 2009)

Dr Patricia O'Brien, National Institute of Intellectual Disability (NIID), Trinity College, is co-ordinating a Marie Curie European Union Transfer of Knowledge Project involving a number of international experts as well as post-doctoral fellows, who are transferring their knowledge into the Trinity College and broader Irish Communities. The aim is to implement a series of projects inclusive of:

  • A National Survey of people with intellectual disabilities; 
  • A National Survey of family members; 
  • A project to gather and house the life-stories of people with intellectual disabilities; and,
  • An evaluation of the resource tools developed in the 'No Longer Researching About Us Without Us' project designed for people with intellectual disabilities to learn about research methods and practices.

Edel Tierney Director of Research and Policy Development represents the National Federation on the project advisory group.

Further information on this project is available on NIID website.
