The enterprising spirit is alive and well in Dublin it seems. Innovation Dublin, which in previous years has run for the course of a week, has this year been extended across an entire month. The festival promotes and celebrates innovation and creativity in the city and aims to provide a dynamic forum for the exchange of ideas. This year, the festival will act to highlight Dublin’s bid to become World Design Capital 2014. A wide array of seminars, workshops, discussions, tours, exhibitions, performances and competitions will be on offer, but some of the highlights include the following:
Education for Enterprise — a forum where prominent entrepreneurs and enterprise agencies, together with business organizations, can join with leading educationalists to consider questions relating to the future of enterprise education in Ireland.
Dublinked —a workshop which will look at how data and information can be used to create jobs and opportunities
Budding entrepreneurs, scientists, IT enthusiasts and creative types alike are encouraged to check out the full programme of events. If you think getting out and about around the city to all the events that interest you might pose a problem, not to worry, Innovation Dublin is also offering a range of downloadable podcasts and virtual tours.
