In addition, TU Dublin has been successful in acquiring corporate level funding from GNI for postgraduate research to PhD level. Maintaining good communications between the partners has resulted in this additional research funding and will provide the continued progressive evolution of the partnership into the future.

The partnership meets the University objectives to support learning within companies, in industry and on the job in practical environments that simulate the real-life work scenario and thus enhance the school profile. Additionally, it extends the teaching and learning options of the University under the approved partnerships. The partnership also specifically supports the University goals to develop and support programmes of CPD to provide progression opportunities for people working in Industry (principally those with technical and craft-based qualifications).
