Abstract
Skellig Centre for Research & Innovation (Skellig CRI) is a unique partnership between Kerry County Council, University College Cork and South Kerry Development Partnership focused on the regeneration of Cahersiveen on the Skellig Coast in County Kerry, Ireland. This town faces extensive and long-term challenges demographically, economically and socially. These challenges are impacting on the identity and sense of viability of the area (Kerry County Council, 2015) The objective of Skellig CRI is to jointly establish a higher education satellite campus being an incubation hub for research, innovation and entrepreneurialism based in Cahersiveen, County Kerry. It is a space that fosters collaboration, community building, and a higher education research spirit. This Centre promotes local level collaboration with national and international research communities, emulating in a local context the impact of a third level institution on a rural community.
