UCD College of Science Global Engagement

Global engagement in the College of Science is led by Professor Eleni Mangina. Throughout the 2022/23 academic year, the College Global Engagement Group commenced implementation of their strategy, alongside formulating the first regional strategies for China and Africa. The College participated enthusiastically in recruitment fairs in India and North America and conducted a lecture series in high schools across multiple countries. Travel to the Asia-Pacific region, the UAE, India, North America, and South Africa to enhance collaborations was also a central aspect of the global engagement activities, helping grow the international reputation of the College through the establishment of several new partnership agreements.
