Strategic Plan

2014 - 2016: Collaboration - The Key to Development and Success

A recognised characteristic of HEAnet’s normal working practice is credible stakeholder engagement, and this was again the case in the development of our new strategy. In determining our future direction, we initiated a process of robust research, consultation and analysis.

Consultations with stakeholders over the past number of months have made it clear that this strategic plan must require HEAnet to make a step change in terms of its service offering, performance and agility so that, in a rapidly changing environment, it continues to make a significant contribution to the education and research community in Ireland.

This strategy will cover the 3-year period 2014-2016 with a substantial review at the end of 2015 – at which time, it may be extended for a further 2 years if deemed appropriate.

HEAnet’s new vision and strategic goals will ensure that the organisation remains a key enabling infrastructure for the education sector – relevant, responsive, effective and innovative
