Partners

Inventorium is a three-year programme taking place across southeast Ireland and northwest Wales. Inventorium is designed to bring together people who would not normally meet – people who each have a part but not the whole of an innovation. The project aims to establish a sustainable distributed mechanism for the generation of new ideas, which will lead to the formation of new businesses or contribute to sustaining existing businesses. The focus of Inventorium is on digital technologies for health, public services, education, leisure, tourism, culture, entertainment, environment and transport. Inventorium is a partnership between CAST Ltd in Bangor and NDRC in Dublin and supported by the European Union’s Ireland Wales Interreg IV Programme. www.inventorium.org

Innovation Dublin Festival was launched to promote innovation and creativity in the city. Conceived by the Creative Dublin Alliance and coordinated by Dublin City Council, the project aims to provide Dubliners – whether they’re entrepreneurs, students, researchers, artists or large corporations – with an opportunity to discuss, promote and celebrate innovation in the city. Organised by a multidisciplinary steering committee made up of the Dublin local authorities, third level institutions, state agencies, businesses and the not-for-profit sector, the festival will take place from November 10th-21st.  www.inventorium.org
