In Person Event

Innovation is the game-changer that pushes us individually and collectively in our organisations beyond existing boundaries or limits and allows the world of business to continually advance. Learning and development professionals report that one of the most critical issues facing them is unlocking the latent innovation capacity that exists in their organisations to build a culture of innovation.
(Innovation Capability Development in Ireland, 2019, p.3).
In educating for practice, our goal is to provide management and business graduates and professionals with the capabilities needed to propel the organisations of the future. This collaborative academic and business ecosystem event showcases best practice in innovation capability approaches across the Island of Ireland. Panellists discuss ‘developing research and innovation capability for sustainable collaboration’ across the innovation eco-system and offers insights through multiple lens including InterTradeIreland, innovation researchers and Innovate Ireland.
