Research Active Programme is a research training opportunity for people with intellectual disability. RAP is designed to:

  • Enable people with disabilities to become co-researchers and to eventually do independent research

  • Establish a core group of co-researchers to work alongside members of Intellectual Disability Studies @UL

  • Create an opportunity for people with intellectual disabilities to participate in the context of 3rd level education
