Committees & Networks

In 2018, an AS internal UL network (23F, 11M) was established to share knowledge and experience, survey data, action plans, best practice initiatives and lessons learned amongst AS leads. The network promotes and hosts events and links in with the National AS Network.

This was established in 2018 by UL after the internal network was established. Twenty institutions attended the inaugural meeting of the national network in UL in October 2018. Its purpose is to share best practice across universities, colleges and IoT’s and to provide support to institutions commencing their AS journeys.
