Our Purpose

Our purpose is to support and enable organisations unlock the transformative power of learning using applied research, innovative practices and technology.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be globally recognised as a centre of excellence for the future of work and learning, and to enable Ireland strengthen its competitive position in this sector.”

Who we help

We work with companies that want to prepare for a future of constant learning by maximising the power of technology to enhance learning outcomes. Our clients include creators of learning technologies as well as organisations who want to deploy learning technologies in ways that have real impact on end users. We work with suppliers who develop the technology and create the content, and with buyers who adopt technology-led solutions.

What makes us unique is the way we leverage our multifaceted expertise to help our supply-side clients to develop commercially impactful products and our demand-side clients to deploy and use them effectively in their organisations.
