Interdisciplinary Research at DCU

Interdisciplinary Research at DCU

The promotion of interdisciplinary research is a key focus within Dublin City University’s Strategic Plan 2017-2022. The facilitation of opportunities for academic staff, researchers and postgraduate research students to engage in authentic dialogue provides real opportunities to enrich and support interdisciplinarity, and facilitates growth in research across multi-disciplinary contexts. 

If you are interested in engaging with colleagues in other disciplines, please use our Research Portal  to locate DCU colleagues engaged in research within and beyond your own areas of interest.

Some examples of recent interdisciplinary research projects in DCU are presented in the film clips below. If you interested in identifying funding sources for your interdisciplinary projects, or exploring interdisciplinary workshops, please contact the DCU Research and Innovation Support team at 01-700 8000 or
