E3 Research Institute

Building on its tradition of innovation, entrepreneurship and engagement, the expected development of the Grand Canal Innovation District (GCID) being championed by Trinity will afford another opportunity to contribute to the development of Dublin as an innovation centre.

E3 Research Institute

At the heart of GCID, and ensuring connectivity to the wider innovation ecosystem, the E3 Research Institute will be a venue for large-scale research programmes, especially for those working in collaboration with industry and other stakeholders.

E3 Research Institute will tackle the fundamental issues of a liveable planet, the technological development that is needed for our economy and society, and the social behaviours that emerge or that need to be fostered. At the core of the E3 Research Institute is a recognition that technology must evolve in symbiosis with the natural world. The natural world furnishes us with resources that are needed for economic activity and for society, and that economic activity in turn impacts on the natural world.
