Civic Engagement: DCU in the Community

We also promote two initiatives in the area of social innovation for community and enterprise engagement:

NorDubCo – a think-and-do tank promoting social, economic and civic development across North Dublin, North-South Social Innovation Network – dedicated to the sharing of knowledge and learning across sectors and cross-border.
