Trinity is one of the world's leading research-intensive universities, with a holistic outlook encompassing all major academic disciplines, and is committed to world-class research activities in key areas across science, engineering, social sciences, medicine and the arts. Trinity’s research strategy is based on the identification and promotion of multi-disciplinary research areas in which the College has a critical mass of world-class researchers, who have potential to make significant social and economic impact.
Our strategic focus is on five key areas – European & International Integration, Culture & Creative Arts, Materials & Intelligent Systems, Biosciences & Translational Research and Transport, Energy & Environment. In each of these areas Trinity has significant research activities, linked nationally and internationally, building on a cornerstone of interdisciplinarity to deliver research of global consequence. Built on the foundations of individual excellence, clustering expertise into multi-disciplinary teams, Trinity has a portfolio of research activity presented as a set of Themes which have the scale, resources and ability to address important research challenges.
Collaboration is key to Trinity’s Research Strategy. I welcome contact from universities, companies and international research organisations.
