Research and publications

All of our learning experiences here at UCD Innovation Academy are grounded in academic rigour.

We’re constantly reviewing the latest academic research, drawn from the world’s leading educational institutions. We incorporate best practice in education and innovation into our courses, and adapt these to the Irish context where necessary.

We also support two PhD researchers within the Academy.
