Research for Society

Breakthrough solutions for a better world…

At DCU, our research is born out of new thinking and an innate drive to find solutions for a better world.

Our ability to conduct research that positively transforms lives and societies is greatly enhanced through our philanthropic partnerships.

Together with our supporters, we are harnessing DCU’s unique areas of expertise to address society’s greatest challenges. We lead the way in bringing fresh thinking to the complex issues we face today, from advancing early years STEM education and bringing a humanities and social science perspective to the challenge of climate change, to devising engineering solutions to provide clean water for all.
