Speaking at the 2015 Innovation Showcase, Minister Damien English, TD, took a common phrase coined by the Government and gave it a new direction.

While the Government champions Ireland as ‘the best small country in the world in which to do business’, Minister English would like to see Ireland become the best small country in which to collaborate.

Speaking as he launched a directory of supports for research, development and innovation in Ireland, he encouraged delegates at the Innovation Showcase to pool their resources and work together to develop new ideas.
