The President of TU Dublin, Professor David FitzPatrick, will join a webinar with Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar T.D. on Wednesday, 9 February to discuss the key role Universities play in our society.
The event, hosted by the Irish Universities Association (IUA), with MC Shane Coleman, will also include contributions from Catherine Duffy, Senior VP, General Manager at Northern Trust Limerick and President of AMCHAM 2022 and Anne Heraty, Non-Executive Director and Founder of Cpl.
Introduced by Professory Andrew Deeks, Chair of IUA and President of University College Dublin, the panel will explore the key role Universities have in shaping the future development of our country and economy, both through their work in nurturing the graduate talent pool and in providing the capacity for cutting-edge research for the knowledge economy. Universities have and are making a major contribution to the national response to the COVID crisis, and we will discuss the equally important part they will play in Ireland’s post-COVID recovery.
