TCD-UCD Innovation Alliance

The TCD-UCD Innovation Alliance is a partnership between Ireland's two leading universities and working with the education sector, the State and its agencies alongside the business and venture capital communities to develop a world-class ecosystem for innovation that will drive enterprise development in Ireland.

By forming the Innovation Alliance, University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin recognise a need to evolve and play a powerful role within such an ecosystem.

The TCD-UCD Innovation Academy is an important part of the TCD-UCD Innovation Alliance. The Academy is a collaborative joint venture in PhD education that builds on existing resources and synergies between the two institutions and recognises the need for higher education to be a catalyst for innovation in Ireland.
