The Environmental Sustainability and Health Institute (ESHI) is a dedicated national translational research platform. ESHI is uniquely based on collaboration between  Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), the Health Service Executive (HSE), Dublin City Council (DCC), and the University of Ulster (UU) building national and regional capacity and capability.

ESHI is uniquely positioned to facilitate an interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach, integrating academic research with the knowledge and expertise of relevant professionals to generate collective responses to public health issues. Building upon existing education and research expertise, in addition to collaborations and strategic partnerships with multi-sector stakeholders, researchers at ESHI develop evidence-based interventions addressing environmental health problems.
