Funding for the following projects were made in 2021.
Centre for Cross Border Studies (CCBS) - €180,000
Standing Conference on Teacher Education North/ South (SCoTENS) €30,000
Universities Ireland - €30,000
Washington Ireland Programme - $106,000
George Mitchell Scholarship Programme - $407,167
While the Revised Estimates Volume will be published later this month, it is likely that the same volume of expenditure will be made for 2022.
In addition, commitments were made in respect of the following projects, but as yet no funding has taken place in respect of the North South Research (with a commitment of €40m) and All-island Research hubs (yet to be finalised).
Finally, following the approval by the Irish Government and the NSMC of the draft PEACE PLUS programme, DFHERIS will also be liable for expenditure in respect of the cross-border skills initiative. However, the draft plan, including the allocation of funding across the various actions, is subject to final approval from the EU Commission.
It is not possible at this stage to finalise the funding positions for 2023.
