In May 2019, Trinity College Dublin initiated Inspiring Generations. This is the largest philanthropic campaign to ever take place in the country. It aims to raise EUR 400 million to fund transformational research projects at the university, and influence members of the global Trinity community to partake in 150,000 hours of volunteering. It is the first major campaign in Trinity’s history.
The campaign aims to attract the best students and academics from all countries and backgrounds. They will come together through research to tackle some of the globe’s key problems, such as environmental and medical issues.
Flagship projects that will benefit from this funding include global challenges across Engineering, Environment and Emerging Technologies, the Trinity St James’ Cancer Institute, Trinity’s Old Library and much more. The student scholarships and academic posts on offer will also be enhanced.
