Our Mission

Our Mission

As we work toward the objectives and actions we wish to achieve, we note that ICS research is:

  • Already embedded in the four strategic themes laid out in UCD’s Rising to the Future:
    Creating a Sustainable Global Society; Transforming through Digital Technology;
    Building a Healthy World; and Empowering Humanity
  • Highly interdisciplinary and integrated into an international research community
  • Inclusive and engaged with all sectors of society
  • Integrated with education so that our graduates may be equipped with knowledge for successful social participation
  • Oriented towards social benefit

This will be achieved by building on our established reputation in Ireland and internationally through:

  • Joint research projects, collaborations, and proposals at international level e.g., Horizon Europe, UK-Ireland 
  • Ranking in both disciplines of Library and Information Management and Media and Communications in the QS rankings
  • High impact conference organisation, research exchange schemes and other collaborations
