UCD joins global network of research universities

University College Dublin (UCD) has joined the Worldwide Universities Network. President Andrew J. Deeks will join the WUN Board.

University College Dublin (founded in 1854) has flourished over the past 160 years, making a substantial contribution to the creation of modern Ireland. UCD is one of Europe's leading research-intensive universities, currently ranked within the top 1% of institutions world-wide and home to 27,000 Ireland-based students drawn from over 120 countries, together with a further 5,500 students based abroad.

UCD faculty engage in international research collaborations, sharing and contributing to a global bank of knowledge that aims to impact on society. In order to further expand this global engagement, UCD has developed a network of UCD Global Centres, each of which provides a hub of research and education connections for students, faculty, alumni and partners. 

UoB researchers are encouraged to explore the possibility of creating links to this new Member university.
