Tangent | Trinity Ideas Workspace

TANGENT, TRINITY’S IDEAS WORKSPACE IS A PLACE IN WHICH TO IMAGINE, COLLABORATE AND PUT INTO ACTION IDEAS THAT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
IMAGINE COLLABORATE ACT
Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin is committed to providing a transformative learning environment that fosters innovation and entrepreneurship at all levels across the university. The opportunities opening up today are infinite. They are invisible to some, impossible to others. Identifying these opportunities to students requires new tools and methods. Realising them requires imagination.

Tangent is a new unit in Trinity offering students, staff, and the wider innovation ecosystem programmes and events in innovation, creative thinking, and entrepreneurship. Through our masterclasses, innovation challenges, certificate programmes, hackathons, meetups, fireside chats, incubation space, and startup accelerator programmes – Tangent provides countless opportunities to innovate and imagine. All of which will be held in a newly developed bespoke innovation space on Trinity’s main campus.
IMAGINATION We inspire, challenge and provoke a creative mindset among our student population. Through effective education and supports, Tangent helps to spark our students’ imagination. We encourage curiosity and ideation. This is what helps us to create real impact.
COLLABORATION We embrace the creative fusion that happens when arts meet science, and education meets enterprise. Through collaboration we believe that when we come together with an open mind and embrace alternative ways of thinking, no challenge is too complex, no opportunity out of reach.

ACTION We do not stop at ideas.  We create impact, disruption, and enterprises. Tangent values action.  We encourage our students to try to create new possibilities. We deliver economic, cultural and social value through entrepreneurship. Our students perseverance enables their ideas to come alive.
