CIT Creates Ireland’s First Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence
Cork Institute of Technology is delighted to announce the creation of its new Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence, The Hincks Centre. In creating Ireland’s first Centre of Entrepreneurship Excellence, CIT is extending its long-standing, strong, commitment to supporting the entrepreneurship drive at regional and national level. CIT intends to address a gap in Ireland’s current ability to train and provide support to all stakeholder groups who support and nurture entrepreneurship. The Hincks Centre will also address some key gaps in current research on entrepreneurship in the Irish context and will utilise these outputs to inform national policy and strategy.
The Hincks Centre will be focused on three pillars of activity: training entrepreneurship support staff & entrepreneurs; research on entrepreneurship in Ireland with a view to informing national policy and education and accreditation of entrepreneurial educators. The combination of these strands of entrepreneurial focus will enable the further expansion of CIT’s activity and will deliver even more added value to CIT’s stakeholders.
