European Consortium of Innovative Universities
DCU is proud to be a member of the prestigious European university network, the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU). DCU is the only Irish university to be represented in this network of 11 European universities and three associate partners, from Australia, Mexico and Russia, all of whom share a common commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship.
The vision of the ECIU is to be a global leader in higher education through the collective expertise of the consortium, its dedication to enhancing the learning experience of students, and a focus on fostering economic and social development in the regions.
All members of the ECIU have established a reputation for working closely with industry and business, for strong interdisciplinary links and an entrepreneurial mind-set. The ECIU’s strategy is to remain a small, tightly-knit, consortium that collaborates on different activities and makes a difference to both its member institutions and their surrounding societies.
DCU is the most recent university to join the consortium which includes such other internationally renowned members as the University of Strathclyde, UK; Linkopings Universitet, Sweden; Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg, Germany; University of Twente, Netherlands and Universidade de Aveiro, Portugal.
