Linda Doyle new provost of Trinity College Dublin

The 31st of July marked the end of Dr Patrick Prendergast’s ten-year term as provost of Trinity College Dublin. Professor Linda Doyle takes over and is the first woman to ever host this role.

Linda Doyle was Professor of Engineering and the Arts at Trinity College. She has held the role of Dean of Research at Trinity and was the founder Director of CONNECT, the Science Foundation Ireland national research centre for Future Networks and Communications. As provost she will lead Trinity College Dublin in achieving its core mission in education, research and innovation, and in strengthening its position as Ireland’s leading university on the world stage.

Professor Linda Doyle said:

Trinity is an extraordinary institution filled with exceptionally talented staff and students but I believe we can set our ambitions for it even higher. I want Trinity to be the most open, productive, and creative place to teach, learn and to do research. I want Trinity to be a public university that is fearless in its pursuit of a deep-rooted fairness.

Professor Doyle’s expertise is in the fields of wireless communications, cognitive radio, reconfigurable networks, spectrum management and creative arts practices. She has been Chair of the Douglas Hyde Gallery and is Chair of the Ofcom Spectrum Advisory Board in the UK. She initially studied electrical engineering at UCC, before completing a Masters and PhD in Trinity College.

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
