Research at DCU

Research at DCU stems from the academic excellence of its four faculties coupled with a passion for translating knowledge into innovations for economic or societal benefit. Beyond specific disciplinary research, DCU’s activities are focused on some of society’s most pressing needs: health technologies, and the healthy and ageing society; information technology and the digital society; sustainable economies and societies; and democratic and secure societies.

These are reinforced by three cross-cutting platforms: the science and technology enhancement platform, the business innovation platform, and the social impact platform.
