The iEd Hub is an educational consortium featuring the Cork region’s universities, enterprise stakeholders and leading industries in the Health and Life Sciences sector. We co-design with Cork universities and will deliver a suite of new postgraduate and undergraduate programmes to produce a new generation of graduates for the Health and Life Sciences industry sector, including young indigenous and mature multinational companies. iEd education is holistic, featuring both technical and non-technical skill sets, with students spreading their time between industry sites and academic campuses. The iEd graduates are embedded with the skills and values needed to forge the future in the Irish Industry.
The iEd Hub is funded by €8.7 million awarded under the Government’s Human Capital Initiative Programme (HCI), designed to meet priority skills needs and deliver innovative approaches to education for enterprises across Ireland’s economy.
