Information & Communication Studies - Research

The School is uniquely and prestigiously designated as an iSchool, a university-level institution devoted to understanding the role of information in society; ICS is the only iSchool in the country, as well as on the whole of the Island.

The ethos of research in the school is grounded in forward thinking research with a view to influencing development, policy, and regulatory frameworks at domestic and regional levels. The trans-disciplinarity of research in the School is attractive to staff who study multiple research areas and enables them to find a home in Information and Communication Studies.

The School is committed to research that has a social impact. Researchers in the School regularly report on their work via radio, television, and newspaper venues. Additionally, researchers in the School have provided information and advice at Oireachtas committees and have had their research noted in Dáil Éireann. Researchers in the School further offer leadership roles in relevant national and international societies and committees, e.g. the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI), the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform's Open Data Governance Board, and the National Open Research Forum, and are routinely invited to give keynotes at leading events on a range of topics.
