The Innovation Ireland Forum 2014 brought together some of the brightest minds in industry, academia and entrepreneurship to discuss the future of technology in our society.

On Friday, 24 October in the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin, representatives from Intel, Bell Labs, ESB Networks, Irish Research Council, Nuritas and more came together to demystify concepts such as bioinformatics, the internet of things (IoT), next-wave analytics, and open innovation and collaboration in industry and academia.

Keynote speakers at the event included Mark Castleman, entrepreneur-in-residence with Bell Labs; Philip Moynagh, vice-president of Intel’s internet of things group; and Nora Khaldi, founder and CSO of Nuritas, a start-up that is creating the future of food.

In the audience and part of panel discussions were senior academics, entrepreneurs and industry representatives who engaged in wide-ranging discussion on Ireland’s future policies and practices when it comes to enabling innovation.
