A GOREY student was among 200 graduates at the inaugural graduation ceremony at the Innovation Academy in UCD.
Aaron Byrne was awarded a Post Graduate Certificate in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Enterprise.
Professor Suzi Jarvis, Founding Director of Innovation Academy, UCD said that Ireland's policy makers must move away from an outdated and narrow definition of equating entrepreneurship with start-up companies, if Ireland is to develop a culture supportive of innovation and entrepreneurialism.
The Innovation Academy is an intellectual space that promotes creativity and innovative thinking among postgraduate students.
Those involved in the Academy are drawn from a community of PhD researchers, engaged in scholarship within and across disciplines, in areas of societal, cultural and economic relevance for Ireland and globally.
