Whitaker Institute for Innovation and Societal Change

The Whitaker Institute for Innovation and Societal Change is inspired by the legacy of pioneering statesperson Dr. T.K. Whitaker, and aims to adopt a similarly innovative, multidisciplinary and transformative approach to the challenges currently facing business and society, both in Ireland and internationally.

Over 200 members make up the faculty, creating the largest critical mass of business and social science researchers in Ireland, with expertise spanning across the College of Business, Public Policy and Law and the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies. Subsuming the University’s Centre for Innovation and Structural Change (CISC), the Whitaker Institute builds on a decade of research-excellence and policy-focused contributions supported by over €11 million in competitive national and international research funding.
