Trinity College Dublin
Trinity’s position as one of the world’s leading universities is defined by our research, scholarship, and capacity to address issues of global, societal and economic importance
Drawing on our disciplinary strengths and emerging cross-disciplinary thematic focus areas, Trinity has established internationally visible research, evidenced through the growing number of internationally funded researchers and research projects, research centres and institutes of scale. The latter seek to maximise our impact in specific fields such as ageing, neuroscience, nanotechnology, telecommunications and the digital humanities. Each brings together the necessary critical mass of facilities and research excellence to engage and benefit the wider stakeholder community: industry, government, national and international funding agencies and the general public.
Our drive for research excellence and innovation also informs how we educate. Trinity students are exposed to leading researchers and scholars who encourage the development of critical, analytical and creative thinking skills, both through their teachings and by providing opportunities for individual research projects. The Trinity educational experience seeks to challenge the established world view and the society we live in, to enable learners to reach their full potential, and to facilitate the formation of tomorrows’ leaders.
