We’re Ireland’s go-to digital skills and innovation partner. We collaborate with industry thought leaders and academic specialists to provide practical, applied skills designed to bridge skills gaps, accelerate competitiveness and foster innovative and entrepreneurial thinking.

We operate and manage Ireland’s largest Skillnet Network – the Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet. Over the past decade, Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet has helped 5,000+ organisations and 12,000+ technologists to build the critical skills needed to thrive in today’s dynamic technology landscape.

Our purpose is to advance Ireland’s technology workforce, by building critical technology skills needed for the future of work. Collaborating with industry, we develop training courses that bridge skills gaps and future-proof companies and individuals for their next phase of growth.

  • Strategic Thought Leaders: We work at the intersection of industry and academia, providing strategic insights and applied skills that shape the future and accelerate competitiveness.
  • Project Management Capabilities: Our proprietary project management methodology ensures all projects are delivered on time, and within budget. We recognise the importance of adaptability, and our methodology is designed to be as flexible and responsive as it is effective.
