The SMARTlab is pleased and immensely proud to announce the opening of its new main base at University College Dublin.
In late 2010 Lizbeth Goodman was appointed UCD’s Chair of Creative Technology Innovation, Professor of Inclusive Design for Education, as well as Executive of the Innovation Academy. She has since been working to bring the SMARTlab team and studios from London to Dublin, and establishing new Irish team members.
Housed within the UCD School of Education at Roebuck Castle, SMARTlab’s role is to serve as an innovation hub and catalysing agency of change to work within the key research areas of art, design, technology, education, science and health. SMARTlab offers creative spaces, methods and tools to all the UCD community and the wider communities of Dublin and Ireland.
Since arriving at UCD, SMARTlab has started projects at local schools and hospitals, as well as collaborating with partners internal to UCD.
