Undergraduate summit gets underway
Forty of the worlds brightest students met Taoiseach Enda Kenny today as part of the inaugural Undergraduate Awards Summit.
The students were brought to Dublin for a three-day Summit, considered a Davos for students, which will consist of networking events, talks and hands-on workshops such as Batman vs. Einstein, Are Academics the New Superheros?, Where Is That Corporate Ladder & How Do I Get On? and Unleashing Your Inner Misfit.
The Undergraduate Award winners represent the foremost minds and new ideas emerging from the world's third level institutions.
The Taoiseach described the initiative as impressive and said it was "wonderful" to see the students in Ireland.
As part of the three days of events, which begin today, the summit will also host the Forum on Higher Education, which will bring together international leaders, pioneers and academics to discuss disruptive education and the impact of technology on traditional approaches to learning.
