Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), has produced generations of leaders in a range of fields from Sciences and Health, Business, Law, Social Sciences, Tourism and Hospitality, the Creative and Visual Arts to Engineering and the Built Environment. The lively City-Centre campuses, including the new research and innovation hub at Grangegorman, are home to more than 20,000 students from Ireland and abroad, creating a culturally diverse and stimulating learning and research environment. A comprehensive, dual-sector doctoral-awarding institution, DIT combines the academic excellence of a traditional university with professional, career-oriented learning. Research is strongly focused on problem-solving, and on social and technological development and innovation that advances human knowledge and makes a real impact on people’s lives.
The NTG team at DIT consists of academics from the School of Hospitality Management and Tourism, Ireland’s centre of excellence in Hospitality, Tourism, Leisure and Event Management education. The School is supported by six research pillars, is active in both academic and industry research at the national and international level and is the lead for the NTG work package 6; to develop a Blueprint Sectoral Skills strategy and action plan that presents the joint industry and education perspectives of the Sector Skills Alliance.
