Consultancy is a key mechanism by which the university can transfer knowledge. This knowledge is applied by the organisation and put to work for the public good. Providing specialist opinions, advising on technical issues and helping to solve problems contributes to the growth of the economy and improves society generally.
The provision of consultancy is recognised as one of the university’s impact activities and supports UCD’s strategy.
ConsultUCD has been set up specifically to provide a complete support service to UCD staff who wish to work as consultants. We can help you by:
This support leaves you free to focus on the most important things: sharing your expertise and building your relationship with the client.
We work with all disciplines and offer support for all projects, regardless of value or duration. If you have questions you may find an answer on our FAQ page or please get in touch with us directly.
We are always happy to discuss how we can help you deliver consultancy for external clients - whether you have a firm opportunity right now or just want to talk about the general principles and the assistance that we can provide. You’ll find more information on our webpages http://www.ucd.ie/innovation/researchers/consultucd/
