Postgraduate students from across all four colleges embarked on a journey of solving some of our UCC and grand societal challenges. Hosted by Blackstone LaunchPad at UCC with Graduate Studies Office, 60 students participated in the two day event.

60 postgraduate students, 7 challenges, 5 industry experts, 4 colleges, 2 days!


Michael B. Vaughan, a PhD student in the College of Medicine and Health at UCC came to Blackstone LaunchPad and Graduate Studies with an idea to launch a multidisciplinary event for all postgraduate students. The Graduate Attributes Programme was proud to support the idea.  This video is a culimination of a fantastic two days in January.
