Recently IPIC gathered members from across all institutions; Tyndall National Institute, Munster Technological University, Dublin City University, National University of Ireland Galway, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork and University of Limerick.  We workshopped the following topics: –

  • Research Integrity
  • Education and Public Engagement
  • Entrepreneurship / critical thinking
  • Career Development
  • Teamwork – the power of open networks

We had 120 staff and students in attendance, working together on the above topics assessing where we are with these, identifying any gaps and planning for how we grow and evolve moving forward in addressing today and tomorrow’s grand societal challenges.  We also had time for a poster session, networking and opportunity to meet new faces and those we had only met on screen due to the past years of covid.  The day was a great success.  As a centre we have achieved a lot, but still a lot more to do.
