The initiative brings together five Higher Education Institutions: Maynooth University, Technology University of the Shannon: Midlands Midwest, Dublin City University, Dundalk Institute of Technology and University College Cork with education technology providers, to develop courses in which a virtual laboratory experience is complemented with a real laboratory experience. The initiative will give students the opportunity to experience a real-work environment through virtual training and engagement with enterprise partners, and to help reinforce practical techniques and concepts, as well as management and project work.
