Speaking at Monday’s launch, Minister Collins said, “Successful societies and economies will be those that invest in and embrace talent, scientific research, creativity and knowledge creation and learn how to successfully use these to improve societal wellbeing and support a sustainable economy. Mary Immaculate College’s commitment to research excellence and to developing and nurturing the next generation of researchers is demonstrated through the launch of its inaugural Doctoral Framework, A Framework of Good Practice for Research Degree Programmes. This Framework will support improvements in the postgraduate learning experience, as well as ensuring that these students are fully equipped to enter employment upon graduation. The Framework comes at a time when researchers, and the role research plays in dealing with the crises we all face, are under a spotlight. The contribution research and researchers make to improving our lives and wider society, locally and globally, has been demonstrated repeatedly over the past year.”

According to Professor Niamh Hourigan, Vice-President of Academic Affairs at MIC, “The shared ultimate aim of MIC’s Framework for Doctoral Education is to enable our graduates to engage in a life of progressive and responsive engagement with the key debates, controversies and issues in a world of increasing social, cultural and economic diversity, nationally and internationally.”

She added, “The framework is intended not only as a response to changes in the purposes of research degree programmes but also as a call for continuing dialogues with the University of Limerick, the Technological University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwest, other HEIs and external bodies in a spirit of strengthening mutually held priorities about the advancement of national priorities, policy imperatives and good practices across the higher education sector.”
