IRSA provides a collective voice for professional contract researchers in Ireland and will:
- Gather information and build consensus among research staff associations in Ireland regarding best-practice policies for research staff.
- Articulate and promote these policies at the National and International level.
- Engage with government bodies, funding agencies, professional organisations and other relevant parties to advocate for improvements in policies affecting research staff.
