Olivia Daly is currently Senior Project Officer on ECIU (European Consortium of Innovative Universities) at Dublin City University (DCU). She coordinates and supports DCU’s contribution to the Erasmus+ funded ECIUn+ project ‘ECIU University’ and maintains oversight of DCU’s activities in the wider ECIU network. ECIU University is an alliance of 14 universities united by a joint goal to make an impact – where learners, teachers, and researchers work with cities, communities, and businesses to solve real-life challenges and foster change. ECIU University is one of 50 European University Alliances (as of June 2024). Olivia is chair of DCU’s ECIUn+ Implementation Group, Secretary of DCU’s ECIU Strategic Oversight Committee and provides high-level administrative support to the Vice-President of Academic Affairs (Board member of ECIU University). Her role enables her to navigate the complexities of project management in a higher education institution and education provision in a European context.

Olivia has a primary degree in Environmental Science from Trinity College Dublin. She has over seventeen years’ of experience in European-funded projects, specifically project management, stakeholder engagement, quality assurance, technical and financial reporting, risk analysis, risk management, and grant procurement. She previously worked at AquaTT and Erinn Innovation where she worked on a portfolio of EC-funded multi-disciplinary projects across funding programmes: Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliance (MATES), Horizon 2020 (SIMBA, BIOCON-CO2), FP7 (Healthy Futures, Sea For Society), Lifelong Learning Programme (2Fish, INTRANEMMA, Vocational Aqualabs, Aqua-RET 1 & Aqua-RET 2, Pescalex II), Interreg IIIB (Planet Aqua). In her role she carried out strategic identification of exploitable knowledge for external clients such as Bord Iascaigh Mhara, Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency.
