Ireland - the go-to destination for knowledge that will drive the next economy.

Ireland’s credentials as a world-leading location for technology and software companies is underpinned by a vibrant research and development ecosystem. As the world looks to technological innovation to provide sustainable solutions to the economic challenges of the 21st century, Ireland is well placed to leverage its knowledge ecosystem to become an international test bed for tomorrow’s innovation economy.

The Innovation Ireland Forum will bring together the leaders in the ecosystem and the key stakeholders in government, academia, engineering, technology and investment sectors to help shape the direction of thinking and policy in Ireland.

Silicon Republic will ask how we can amplify the message that Ireland is the go-to destination for the knowledge that will drive the next economy.

  • Innovation Ecosystem
  • International Collaboration
  • Innovation for Sustainability
  • Innovation Clusters
  • International Test Bed
  • Sustainable Economic Models
  • Forming Tomorrow’s Talent
