With the rapidly changing worlds of work, education, and personal lives, much of it driven through emerging technologies and digital transformation that’s taking place all around us, there is an appetite to learn, experiment and deliver new smart and digital innovations. We are not alone – our network partners have successfully linked cities across Ireland and Europe to participate and build on work that is taking place in the wider network, and across a multitude of dimensions.
Limerick is rich in talent and hosts many leading areas of expertise and practice – including some of the leading global technology, medical and pharma companies as well as globally significant research and education facilities.
The missing part of the puzzle, however, is the voice of the citizen and how that voice should help inform how this work evolves. And this is what we hope to address with these events.
This event, the first of what we hope will be a series of similar engagements, brings together just some of the elements of the current and evolving landscape of innovation in Limerick.
And the final word must go to Sustainability. In all we do together, we will keep this important element in sharp focus – the Limerick of our future will be Smart and Sustainable. We hope you enjoy all the sessions, but also that you see clear opportunity to participate, collaborate and innovate yourselves!
