GCAS Research Institute Ireland

The Global Center for Advanced Studies is the first research community & university that uses Blockchain, 4D VR teaching, live on-line and in person seminars, instant translation-learning, and start-up incubators all guided by a world-class faculty. Our programs empower students with the capacity to earn money pursuing rigorous degrees, discovering and applying new solutions to our most vexing problems, and become co-owners upon graduating. 

We are located in New YorkDublinSantiago, and soon Australia


The Global Center for Advanced Studies (GCAS) is a unique cooperative college fully designed to offer students and faculty a vibrant and courageous alternative to traditional and prohibitively expensive advanced degrees with the aim of equipping students and researchers with the skills to transition into a clean-energy, planet sustainable and a more democratic future in which harmony is restored with our environment.  Our College currently awards a PhD degree in Social and Political Thought subject to validation via the European Qualifications Framework in Ireland. Our BA and MA programs will be launching in September 2018 and focus on Innovation & Philosophy.

Our degree program was created to reanimate the humanities and social sciences in order to combine a variety of disciplines intended to foster original and exceptional research relevant to address the most vexing questions of the twenty-first century including clean-energy and water, shelter, environmental protection and democratic access to education. We synthesize specialized knowledge both in and outside academia with public intellectuals, clean energy businesses, artists, coders, and designers.

We are the first research institute of higher education in modern history founded, organized and led by world-leading intellectuals, academics, writers, artists, and start-ups-influencers.
