The University prides itself on creating a hub of high-tech innovation that leverages the research-intensive university. It has many exceptional resources including an Insight Data Analytics SFI Research Centre which offers data analytics solutions for a broad range of industry partners. 

The DCU Alpha high-tech innovation campus that is pioneering IoT developments and is contributing significantly to Dublin’s reputation as a global leader in the field.

The concept was to create a hub of high-tech innovation in this region that would really leverage the proximity of the research-intensive university.
The Croke Park Smart Stadium project is a collaboration between GAA , Dublin City University, Intel, and Microsoft to fuel IoT innovation.

One of the current projects involves DCU INSIGHT researchers working with Microsoft Azure IoT team to develop a dashboard to highlight unusual crowd behaviour.
