NCAD + UCD is a collaborative academic venture, encompassing teaching projects, research initiatives, cross-institutional programmes and events, with a view to deepening the relationship between both institutions.

The venture aims to identify, examine and develop the potential practical and operational synergies resulting from closer ties between the two institutions.

The purpose of the project is:
—To articulate the path to deepening the relationship between UCD and NCAD, up to and including a full merger.
—To create and develop collaborative opportunities, including teaching projects, research initiatives, cross institutional programmes and events.
—To identify, examine and develop the practical and operational synergies which may result from a closer relationship.

NCAD + UCD is using this collaboration as a means of exploring the relationship between the two institutions. This experience, in conjunction with further research, will contribute to a greater development of the relationship between UCD and NCAD as the project progresses.

The maintenance of institutional, faculty, school and college identities is of central importance to this project and has informed the full range of activities to date. The particular strength of the NCAD + UCD alliance lies in the range and variety of practices and disciplines represented across both institutions.
