Last month the Bridge Network held our quarterly governance meeting in IT Tralee at the invitation of Vice President for Research, Development and External Engagement, Brid McElligott. A key agenda item was the recent HEA/KTI Review of IP Management and Conflicts of Interests Management leading to a discussion on how the consortium can ensure consistency in the implementation of the recommendations in the report across all institutions.

Quarterly governance meetings are used by the Bridge Network Partners to ensure that the consortium is achieving its mission and they underpin the strategic relationships between the partners.
