What is it about?
The debate draws on the Innovation Taskforce Report (March 2010) which sets out recommendations for developing Ireland into an International Innovation Hub, through developing the country’s creative and smart economy.
Inventorium has invited members of the Taskforce and some of Ireland’s leading economic commentators, industry and government members, academics, creatives and entrepreneurs to discuss the nature of innovation within Ireland. Attention will be paid to how the report impacts on the development of digital enterprise within health, public services, education, leisure, tourism, culture, entertainment, environment and transport.
A unique format and networking opportunity
Inventorium has devised a special debate format: each speaker will present his or her viewpoint for five minutes on the question of whether we in Ireland are developing systemic innovation. Audience members will be able to contribute to the emerging conversations, which will be documented and presented on the Inventorium website. The moderator is Irish journalist and writer Kevin Myers so there should be some lively debate.
