Research Strategy

Dublin City University’s Research Strategy for the period 2009 – 2014 maintains, and builds further on our strategic prioritization of translational research and support for our critical mass research teams through targeting of enhanced facilities, strategic alliances and structured graduate programmes. The strategy emphasises the importance of enhanced external impacts of our research in terms of knowledge transfer and commercialisation.

The strategy for 2009 - 2014 continues our consolidation of our research strengths within the context of the overall national framework. It recognizes the challenging external environment arising from the recent dramatic deterioration in national finances and the emergence of key global challenges. This requires a targeted strategy delivering greater-short to medium term impact and with a clear focus on value for money. The strategy document provides information on achievements to date which evidence the university’s research track record and underpin its clear commitment to delivering on its future objectives.
