Our Mission

Our mission is to make a positive impact on society and the environment through engagement, research, innovation and teaching. We welcome contributions to our work from academics, industry professionals, and students alike. Our team of dedicated experts continues to grow.

The Trinity Centre for Social Innovation is a centre of excellence in research into, and the teaching of, the cycle of social engagement, innovation, enterprise and impact. Members of the Trinity Centre for Social Innovation will not only advance knowledge in their chosen domains but also contribute in a meaningful way to changing the way people and institutions in Ireland and around the world develop and deploy business skills and resources to create social impact.

The Centre works both independently and symbiotically alongside the existing activities, research themes and institutes of Trinity Research, the Trinity Civic Engagement Office, Trinity Business School and the Trinity Innovation and Entrepreneurship Hub.

To get involved, please contact Dr Mary Lee Rhodes, Co-Director of the Trinity Centre for Social Innovation.
