Invitation to The Long Debate
We invite you to this very special discussion The Long Debate â€“ which will take place as part of the Inventorium project, during Dublin Innovation Festival.Â Register >>
What is it about?
The debate draws on the Innovation Taskforce report. Launched in March 2010, the report sets out recommendations for developing Ireland into an International Innovation Hub, through developing the countryâ€™s creative and smart economy.
We invite members of the Taskforce, including some of Irelandâ€™s leading economic commenterâ€™s, industry and government members, academics, creativeâ€™s and entrepreneurs to discuss the nature of innovation within Ireland. Attention will be paid to how the report impacts on the development of digital enterprise within health, public services, education, leisure, tourism, culture, entertainment, environment and transport.
A unique format and networking opportunity
An evening of lively discussion and networking, not to be missed! Inventorium has devised a special debate format; eighteen of Irelandâ€™s key contributors and commentators have been invited to give their views and opinions. Each speaker will present his or her viewpoint for five minutes. Audience members will be able to contribute to the emerging conversations, which will be documented and presented on the Inventorium website.

Make The Long Debate your key event in Dublin Innovation Festival
Inventorium is a three-year programme taking place across southeast Ireland and northwest Wales. Inventorium is designed to bring together people who would not normally meet â€“ people who each have a part but not the whole of an innovation. The project aims to establish a sustainable distributed mechanism for the generation of new ideas, which will lead to the formation of new businesses or contribute to sustaining existing businesses. The focus of Inventorium is on digital technologies for health, public services, education, leisure, tourism, culture, entertainment, environment and transport. Inventorium is a partnership between CAST Ltd in Bangor and NDRC in Dublin and supported by the European Union’s Ireland Wales Interreg IV Programme. www.inventorium.org
Innovation Dublin Festival was launched to promote innovation and creativity in the city. Conceived by the Creative Dublin Alliance and coordinated by Dublin City Council, the project aims to provide Dubliners – whether theyâ€™re entrepreneurs, students, researchers, artists or large corporations â€“ with an opportunity to discuss, promote and celebrate innovation in the city. Organised by a multidisciplinary steering committee made up of the Dublin local authorities, third level institutions, state agencies, businesses and the not-for-profit sector, the festival will take place from November 10th-21st.
