Convening enterprise and academia to future-proof the workforce of tomorrow

Convene is a collaboration between Technological University Dublin, UCD Innovation Academy, and enterprise partners across seven major economic sectors. Funded by the Human Capital Initiative, Convene is working to transform university-enterprise engagement and deliver the skills, innovation, and agility needed to rebuild Irish society and enterprise for sustainability and resilience.

We offer an access point into two of the largest universities in Ireland, helping to TRANSLATE enterprise needs, NAVIGATE complex skills and research ecosystems, INTEGRATE collective expertise, CO-CREATE and INCUBATE solutions to common, sector-focussed challenges.

For Enterprise
We aim to build strong, inclusive, and enduring partnerships that leverage and support the capacity within enterprise itself for talent development and innovation.
For Learners
We deliver accessible programmes that future-proof graduates and our workforce, and offer life-long learning and upskilling opportunities for all types of learners.
For Academia
We support faculty and staff by giving them the space, time, and resources to explore new approaches to education and co-create skills and innovation solutions with enterprise.
