Biography

Peter Clinch is Jean Monnet Full Professor and Chair of Public Policy at University College Dublin. Peter holds BA, MA and PhD degrees in economics, a Diploma in Environmental Impact Assessment and is a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School. He is the author of over 100 publications including books, book chapters, international journal articles and conference proceedings and around 100 conference papers and other publications. Peter has held Visiting/Affiliate Faculty Positions at, inter alia, the University of California Berkeley, UC San Diego and Harvard Business School. He has advised or worked on behalf of, inter alia, the World Bank, OECD, and several national governments.

Peter was active in the public debate around economic, environmental and planning policy during Ireland's economic boom. In 2002, he co-authored 'After the Celtic Tiger' pointing out fragilities in the Irish economy in advance of the economic crash. Subsequently, between summer 2008 and early 2011, Peter was based in the Taoiseach's (Prime Minister's) Office where he served as Special Policy Adviser. During this time, he was responsible for advising on medium-term economic policy, enterprise and environmental policy. He was instrumental in developing a medium-term framework for economic growth including drafting 'Building Ireland's Smart Economy: A Framework for Sustainable Economic Renewal' published by the Government in December 2008. Amongst many policy initiatives to position Ireland as a Global Innovation Hub, Peter fronted the establishment of the Innovation Taskforce which reported in March 2010. These policies are now subsumed into the Action Plan for Jobs. He was an advocate for the prioritisation of R&D funding in the review of capital spending and various budgets. Peter also led the development of Innovation Fund Ireland, a 500m euro fund which has attracted top-tier venture capitalists to Ireland to invest in Irish companies. Peter continues to provide advice to Government and, since 2015, has been Chair of the National Competitiveness Council or Ireland. He is also a Member of the National Expert Advisory Council on Climate Change.

Peter's experience includes working in partnership with senior civil servants and with industry. In addition to serving Cabinet Committees on Economic Renewal, Climate Change and Energy Security, and Science, Technology and Innovation, he was a member of Irish Government delegations to the European Council, the UN General Assembly, Davos World Economic Forum, Asia-Europe Meetings, a series of overseas trade missions, as well as the Taoiseach's delegations to meet Heads of States, including US President Obama and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. He has worked with a number of NGOs and is currently a Director of publicpolicy.ie, a 'think-tank' funded by Atlantic Philanthropies. He formerly represented UCD on the Creative Dublin Alliance.

Between 2011 and 2014, Peter served as UCD Vice-President with responsibility for innovation and corporate partnerships. He has held academic positions in the Arts Faculty, Engineering Faculty and College of Human Sciences and served as Head of three Departments. Peter has also served as Director of the UCD Urban Institute and Director of NovaUCD. He was a lead investigator in two successful inter-institutional PRTLI bids (UCD Urban Institute Ireland and the UCD Earth Institute). With colleagues, he has also raised approximately 10m euro in research funding through European Framework and other programmes. In 2007, Peter co-founded EnvEcon Ltd, a spin out company which won a NovaUCD Entrepreneur award. In 2014, Peter was made a Lifetime Honorary Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute for distinguished contributions to planning and, in 2017, was conferred with a Fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences for distinguished contributions to social science research.

Research

Research Interests

I am a welfare economist who has spent my career researching areas where the market economy fails to function correctly in the allocation of society's scare resources. My principal research contributions relate to: the measurement of, and factors determining, societal welfare; definition and measurement of 'value' in this context; how markets fail to correctly price certain assets; and how policy can be designed to correct for these market failures.

 

 

Recent Postgraduates

I have supervised 18 research students to completion in the last ten years.
 

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I view the primary responsibility of an academic as bringing state of the art knowledge to students through research-led teaching.
 

Enhancement of Teaching

I continually strive to enhance my teaching through content updates from recent research and by utilising a mix of teaching and learning methodologies and technologies. I am an advocate of methods to encourage participative learning.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

As Head of Department, I oversaw a complete curriculum reform and the introduction of new Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees as well as an overseas programme.
