EDEN is Maynooth University's Centre for Entrepreneurship, Design and Innovation. EDEN is here to help all students develop their creative confidence and turn their creative ideas into action that will add value to the world. Our mission is to instill creative confidence, to help achieve Personal, Social and Commercial gains. We’re building a positive mindset of creativity and entrepreneurship across the campus at Maynooth University, embedding mutually supportive connections with the surrounding community.

The EDEN Centre is hosted by the Department of Design Innovation, an arrangement that recognises a common approach to new artefact design, whether the artefact is a product or new venture. The activities of the Centre are overseen by a steering committee with representation from all faculties.
