Future Skills and Innovation


Next generation ability and ideas…

At DCU, we are excited by the future. We are always looking ahead, ready to evolve and innovate to change lives and impact our world for the better.

As we move with the world and prepare our students for it, our philanthropic partners play a vital role in fostering innovation and creativity.

Within the gates of our university, we invest in student innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship but our influence extends far beyond this too. Through initiatives like the STEM Teacher Internship Programme or Changemaker Schools Network at DCU Institute of Education, we are ensuring that the student teachers of today and schools across Ireland are ready to prepare children with the skills they will need for tomorrow.
