Innovation in collaboration with communities

24 October 2011: As part of the Innovation Dublin 2011 Festival, DIT Community Links and Dublin City Council are showcasing a range of collaborative projects between DIT students and community groups and not-for-profit organizations.   In 2010/11 approximately 1,200 DIT students across all disciplines and levels were involved in projects and research with over 100 community partners, as part of their studies, for mutual benefit.   Projects ranged from computing students working on computer applications and systems with Irish charity Wells for Zoe in Malawi, to chemistry students hosting an on-line discussion board with inner-city Leaving Certificate chemistry students, to Tourism Marketing and Management students carrying out surveys on attitudes to road safety and making recommendations for tourism, with the Garda Road Safety Unit.   


To share the richness of these collaborations with a wider audience, Dublin City Council has invited DIT Students Learning with Communities to mount an exhibition in the Atrium area of the Civic Offices, Wood Quay for the duration of Innovation Dublin 2011.  The exhibition is open to all, so please drop in and see the fantastic achievements of DIT students in collaboration with community partners┬┐ on view – Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, till November 18th.
