Lero is the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre

It brings together leading software engineering (SE) teams from Universities and Institutes of Technology in a coordinated centre of research excellence with a strong industry focus. Lero has raised the level and profile of Irish software engineering research with such effect that it is now one of the best known and highly regarded SE research centres in the world.


The centre has the proven capacity to attract and retain global research leaders and to make a substantial contribution both to software engineering research and to the Irish economy. Lero is now ready to take on key challenges of Evolving Critical Systems.


The Lero Centre is supported by a CSET grant from SFI, by other state grants, by industry contributions and by external funding (particularly the EU’s research programmes). Non-SFI funding for the Centre is currently 47% of the total and our sustainability plan places particular emphasis on industry support and EU funding in the years ahead.


Lero interfaces with a wide range of industry, state agencies, educational bodies and international collaborators to deliver on its twin goals of research excellence and social and economic relevance.
