UCD Innovation Alumni Survey (2010)

University College Dublin’s new strategic plan, Forming Global Minds, sets out an objective of positioning UCD to play a major role in Ireland’s economic recovery by contributing to Building Ireland’s Smart Economy.

Under this plan UCD will foster entrepreneurship and innovation, across all disciplines, at 3rd and 4th levels to create the business leaders and educated workforce that will be critical to creating the knowledge economy and to securing Ireland’s international competitive advantage.

To help UCD better understand how large numbers of UCD alumni became Irish and global entrepreneurs and to understand more the role that UCD has played in their development, NovaUCD has co-ordinated an alumni innovation survey with UCD's Office of Development and Alumni Relations and UCD IT Services.This survey has recently been distributed via email to the UCD alumni database.

The information obtained in this survey is important in helping UCD to shape its train programmes and supports for the entrepreneurs of the future. 

If you are a UCD Alumnus who has not received an email with a link to the survey and you would like to take part in the survey, you can still do so via the survey link below.
