The name of a technological university will be a matter in the first instance for the institutes applying for designation as a technological university.

I understand that in the case of TU4Dublin, the consortium is about to commence a process to seek input from stakeholders on the potential name for the new technological university, should their application be successful. This process will also take proposals on how the individual campuses within the technological university will be named.

Where a consortium is successful in seeking designation as a technological university, the name of the technological university will be specified in the order being made to establish the new technological university.
